What's The Diff?

The things Quicken Loans team members care about and want to share with the world

Happy birthday to we(Blogs)

It was 10 years ago today that the word "Web log" was coined by a guy named Jorn Barger who maintained a website with his opinion and comments on a variety of subjects.

Two years later, online journal author Peter Merholz took the word "weblog"
and split it into "We blog."

Not long after, blog became the favored word for a weblog, and it remains so today.

You can read the whole story on NPR.  They even provide a pretty interesting timeline of how the internet, the world wide web and blogs evolved.

Enjoy!
