HiSTORY OF The BLOG

From Weblog to Blog

The term weblog was coined by Jorn Barger on the 17th December 1997. The term blog derived from weblog when Peter Merholz jokingly broke the word weblog, into the phrase we blog, in the sidebar of his blog Peterme.com, between April and May in 1999. Shortly after, Evan Williams at Pyra Labs used the term blog as both a noun and verb, re: to blog = to edit one’s weblog or to post to one’s weblog and also devised the term blogger in connection with Pyra Labs Blogger product Blogger.com, which led to the popularization of the various blog terms around the World.
