Blogging 101: Session 1 Review

Thank you everyone for coming yesterday!

Some information on the History of Blogging:

Blogging has been around since 1994 as a way to display information so that the most current article/post is the one you see first. In 1997 the term “weblog” was coined by someone who had a website that “logged the web”. In 1999 the word “blog” was first used by a computer programmer. Fun fact: in 2005 “blog” was the word of the year.

But blogging didn’t really take off until the late 90’s, and by 2003 there were millions of blogs available online publicly. Several of the first sites where you could create your own personal blog are still around, notably Livejournal and Blogger.
