Blogging

Is that really a word?


A short history

A short history

  • It began as WEB LOG

  •  Two professors from Bond University in Australia introduced the term in 1995 at a conference introducing their paper “Exploiting the World-Wide Web for Electronic Meeting Document Analysis and Management””


Blogging

  • the paper itself was aimed at the recording of electronic meetings, but the processes described what eventually turned into todays blogs.

  • There were chat rooms during this time that were similar to blogs but you had to be a member of the room to add information

  • Robotwisdom.com is an example of an original web log which started in 1997


Blogging

  • The origins of modern blogging are argued about almost as much as the question….What is blogging?

  • One thing is for sure blogs began as websites or webpages that provided links and comments to other pages, and its is from this basis that modern blogs emerged.


Blogging

  • In November 1998, Cameron Barrett published the first list of blog sites on Camworld.


Blogging

  • In early 1999 Peter Merholz coins the term blog after announcing he was going to pronounce web blogs as “wee-blog”, that was then shortened to blog.


Blogging

  • As blogging started to grow in 1999, the first portal dedicated to listing blogs was launched, Brigitte Eaton launched the Eatonweb Portal. Eaton evaluated all submissions by a simple assessment that the site consist of dated entries, one of the criteria used today when identifying a blog.


Blogging

  • In May 1999, Scott Rosenberg at Salon.com writes one of the first media articles on the emergence of weblogs and refers to the growing number of “Web Journalists”.


Blogging

  • In August 1999, Pyra Labs, today owned by Google, launches the free Blogger blogging service, that for the first time provides an easy set of tools for anyone to set up a blog. Other services launched around the same time include Pitas and Groksoup.
