The World’s First Blog (aka Web Log)?

Yesterday, I revealed the first website so today I will unveil the Earth’s first blog!

Unfortunately, no one is certain of the first blog. The term “blog” didn’t even appear until 1999. Peter Merholz broke up that phrase into “we blog” and “blog” caught fire as both a noun and verb.

This gave me an excuse to use an image of a ton of logs! I have loggers in my extended family.

What is a blog? Here’s the Wikipedia definition:

“A blog is an informational website consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries.

 Posts are typically displayed in reverse chronological order so that the most recent post appears first, at the top of the web page.”

What I’m doing now is blogging a blog post to my blog!

Some consider the first blog to be by Tim Berners-Lee, the creator of the World Wide Web (WWW). This is the website I mentioned yesterday at .

Berners-Lee would post updates on the website on his progress with the WWW.

But many others consider Justin Hall’s site the first blog. It began in 1994 and is still running! Check it out here:

This blog works much like modern blogs by focusing on short posts and links.
