Around 10 years ago today, one of the first blogs was authored by a gentleman named Jorn Barger, called Robot Wisdom. In the beginning, he wrote content that consisted of short commentaries and links, but in 2000 he began to experiment with a timeline-based format which blogs are known for today (that is, the reverse chronological format today).
But was it The First?
Well, it wasn’t.
And therein lies the debate we may always end up having, as Jorn Barger may have coined the term “blog”, but in fact was not the very first individual posting to what is currently known as a blog.
