Are you a Blogger ? Let's Celebrate ..!!

According to WSJ, blogging has completed its 10 years on July 14, 2007. Jorn Barger is regarded by many as a first blogger. On December 17, 1997, Barger began posting short comments and links on his own Robot Wisdom website, thus pioneering the "weblog" as it is known today. His site soon included interlinked weblog sections titled "Fun," "Art," "Issues," "Net," "Tech," "Science," "History," "Search," and "Shop."
