What’s the point?

Yes…Blogging….Not only a Noun, but a Verb!

Lets take a closer look shall we?

BLOGGING- a Web site containing the writer’s or group of writers’ own experiances, observations, opinions, etc., and often having images and links to other Web sites.

Im sure its been around for a decade or so… but let me double-check!

……………………………………….AH! Here we go!!….

The term “weblog” was coined by Jorn Barger on 17 December 1997. The short form, “blog,” was coined by Peter Merholz, who jokingly broke the word weblog into the phrase we blog in the sidebar of his blog Peterme.com in April or May of 1999. Shortly thereafter, Evan Williams at Pyra Labs used “blog” as both a noun and verb (“to blog,” meaning “to edit one’s weblog or to post to one’s weblog”) and devised the term “blogger” in connection with Pyra Labs’ Blogger product, leading to the popularization of the terms.

 

So now I ask once again. WHAT’S THE POINT?
