Blog… The roots of homepages, web logs and listings can be dated back to 1992.
The first use of the term weblog was presented in a topic named, “Exploiting the World-Wide Web for Electronic Meeting Document Analysis and Management” at a conference in Australia in August 1995.
In 1996 online journal diaries were measured in the hundreds.
In early 1999 Peter Merholz shortens the term “weblog” to blog.
In August 1999, Pyra Labs, today owned by Google, launches the free Blogger service.
Over a very short period of time blogs spread worldwide over the Internet.
In January 2005 Larry Keiler of Lunchbucket, Ontario, Canada begins his first blog. Larry descriped himself as a “Underemployed Pote” he decribed himself as follows
“I am the altered ego of He-Who-Shall-Remain-Nameless, currently serving a seven year term at the Yoni School for Wayward Poets. I was charged and convicted of phelonious misspelling and operating without a poetic license. am the altered ego of He-Who-Shall-Remain-Nameless, currently serving a seven year term at the Yoni School for Wayward Poets. I was charged and convicted of phelonious misspelling and operating without a poetic license.”
His first blog he wrote:
"First things first
First -- figure out what the hell I'm doing with this thing......"
Have you figured it out yet Larry?
As of 2005 there is 50 million online journal blogs.
