Some of your friends may still be hardpressed to describe what one
is, and you may well be feeling guilty about not updating your own
often enough – but hang out the bunting because blogging is now 10
years old, write Bobbie Johnson and Mark Oliver.

Blogs might still feel rather novel, but there are now something like 70m of them around the globe. . . .”

I’m not really certain what to comment about this one…
I’m sure that there were people doing “blogging” before 1997, but I agree that around 97 blogging really got to be popular, as it was introduced to the masses, and made considerably easier to read and write a blog.

So, happy 10th birthday blogging, don’t go away anytime soon.
