Hello It’s Day 28 and today I will be sharing with you a brief history of BLOG

In simple terms, a blog is a personal journal published online.

The first generally recognized blog was created in January 1994 by a college student named Justin Hall.  The blog is and it was not called a blog then since the term “blog” was coined only in early 1999.  Justin Hall referred to it only as his personal homepage.

The term blog (coined by a veteran blogger named Peter Merholz in 1999) came from the word “weblog” a term coined in December 1997 by Jorn Barger, also a veteran blogger.

In the year 1999 blogging began to take off with the introduction of two free blogging tools >> Pitas and Blogger.

In July 1999, launched the first free build-your-own blog tool and in August 1999, Pyra Labs introduced “Blogger”.  Blogger was bought by in 2003, same year when Wordpress was introduced.

That’s it for today, be with you again tomorrow!

God Bless!
