What is a blog

Blogs are online journals that regularly create content on specific or general topics for a community of readers. Mostly blogs are written by a person, the so-called Blogger, posted on a website or blogging platform. However, there are also blogs that are run by a team of authors and publish posts by changing bloggers.

The term “blog” works Weblog and the play on words coined by Peter Merholz "We-blog" back. Like so much in the world of the World Wide Web, weblogs have their origins in the CERN nuclear research center in Geneva. Although blogs or weblogs were not in common at the time, it started Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web and the HTTP protocol, launched the first website on August 6, 1991, and thanks to the first web clients and servers, networked users all over the world and laid the foundation for bloggers.

Websites on the World Wide Web made Internet resources, new scientific publications and links very straightforward for the first time publish, share and network. What actually was the first blog on the web is just as difficult to answer as the question: Who wrote the first diary?

The consensus is that the first private online journals saw the light of day in the mid-1990s. Is considered a pioneer of blogging Justin Hallwith his digital diary "Justin's Links from the Underground" shared his personal everyday life online and at the same time offered an overview of the growing digital world.
