The blog: its origins

While writing a post I wrote the other week, briefly comparing the origins of the newspaper and blogs, I must admit that it was quite difficult to find anything about the origins of the blog (maybe because most people disagree). This might be because people define ‘blogs‘ in different ways, and because there are different styles and types. For instance there are political blogs like Larvatus Prodeo (in Australia), fashion blogs like Manolo’s Shoe Blog, parenting blogs like Momania, and so on. There are all different kinds and each claim to be a blog, so it’s hard to tell who exactly the first blogger was.

However, I just stumbled across a video on youtube discussing the first blogger, which I found a little useful, so I’d like to share it.

    Interesting video – despite the supercheesy music. Ugh!
