The blog word is the abbreviated and derived form of the weblog. It was first used by the American Jorn barger (log the web) in 1997 to describe the weblog. In 1999 Peter Merholz changed the term “weblog” and used it as “we blog”. In time, people stripped of the word “we blog” to name their blogs in the blogs of today’s use.

John Barger Born in Yellow Springs, Ohio. In the early 1990s, James Joyce published articles on Usenet newsgroups with Kate Bush and many other topics. The writings he posted were quite remarkable. He decided to publish his articles on his website. Barger created a blog called “Robot Wisdom” (politics, technology, internet culture, books, artificial intelligence, and many other topics).
