Ancient bloggers[edit]

  • Anand Lal Shimpi was probably blogging on his website in 1997, before the term was coined. I know it because I used to read it in that timeframe. I think that was doing it around the same time. I like to saw logs! (talk) 06:59, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

I wrote one of the first blogs. From about 1994 onwards I wrote and maintained a web site called "Ken Johnson's Home on the Web," which was all written in raw HTML and Java Script. It was hosted on, an internet provider sadly now out of business. I began an on line diary, "My Job Hunting Diary," on the site in about 1996. It was only a couple of years later that I first understood the word 'blog.' (talk) 02:51, 29 January 2017 (UTC) Ken Johnson (kenjohnson195105 @ gmail . com)

Blogging technology[edit]

There should be a section on blogging technology, such as RSS, RSS Readers, Atom, and blog websites - only the last one on that list is currently mentioned in this article.--greenrd (talk) 21:35, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
