The first blog post

Among the first web logs was probably the one started by Tim Berners-Lee in 1992. He's the founder/inventor of the World Wide Web (sorry, Al Gore). Berners-Lee posted regular updates on the early development of the Internet.

But it wasn't until January 10, 1996 when Justin Hall began a personal daily web log at You can read his first post. It was still a web log until Jorn Barger coined the term 'blog' in 1997.

This information comes from Ellen Finkelstein in her book Syndicating Web Sites with RSS Feeds, for Dummies. Yes, I am learning RSS from a 'Dummies' book.
