What is a blog?
GLOBE AND MAIL UPDATE
March 2, 2002


Evolution of the Web

Blogs: There are tens of thousands of Web logs on the Net, many of them updated daily, some of them many times a day. Some are closer to public diaries, others are the authoritative or idiosyncratic musings of experts and cranks.

  • Blogging: the art of turning one's own filter on news and the world into something others might want to read, link to, and write about themselves.

    Bloggers: A U.S. survey has found that one in five teenagers between ages 12 and 17 maintain personal blogs that often attract audiences far wider than their circle of friends and relatives. Diarists can attract fans who buy them gifts from the wish lists linked to their websites. For instance, 18-year-old Mindy Gray of Greeley, Col., has collected more than $500 (U.S.) in goodies from fans after her diary went online two years ago, reported The Denver Post. "Both of Mindy's parents raised Cain when they saw the salty language their daughter used in her blog musings. 'Teenagers talk like that!' Mindy protested."

    Blogger Milestone: At some point during Friday, February 22, 2002, someone posted the 10-millionth post to a Blogger-powered Web log. The winner was Agent Vulga, with a scan of a yellow page ad.

    Blogging begins: Most online sources point to 1999 as the beginning of widespread blogging, as free online software tools eased the process of creating daily logs without specialized Web knowledge.
