Make an Online Journal if That’s Your Style!
When the term blog first surfaced, few people knew what it meant. Today, however, nearly everyone knows what a blog is all about, even your grandmother!
Here’s an interesting snip-it from Yahoo! Answers about the origins of the word blog:
The word weblog has been around since 1993. Originally, it was just a computerized record of the requests handled by a web server. Then, it started to mean a website run by single human being, often in the form of a journal. The earliest known use of that meaning was in 1997.
1999 marks the first recorded use of the shortened form “blog.”
Blogging is a modern means of journaling for many, and if it is a desire of yours to make an online journal then we say, “Go for it!!!” Whatever your journaling style is — public, private, personal, or social — what matters most is that you use journaling as a means to express yourself.
