Happy Blogiversary - 10 Years of Blogging

WSJ.com reminds us of the "fact" that it's been 10 years since the blog was born.

We are approaching a decade since the first blogger -- regarded by many to be Jorn Barger -- began his business of hunting and gathering links to items that tickled his fancy, to which he appended some of his own commentary. On Dec. 23, 1997, on his site, Robot Wisdom, Mr. Barger wrote: "I decided to start my own webpage logging the best stuff I find as I surf, on a daily basis," and the Oxford English Dictionary regards this as the primordial root of the word "weblog."

I added a link to Robot Wisdom, I hope you don't mind GeekAlerts!

Great find, btw - it's interesting to read how blogging had become so popular in such a short time.
