I did not realize this is the 10th anniversary of the invention of blog.
Wall Street Journal observed the moment with a great piece: Happy Blogiversary.
“The spell check on Microsoft Word has yet to awaken to the concept of the blog. Type in “blogging,” for instance, and you will promptly earn a disapproving underscore in red, with the suggestion that “bogging,” “clogging,” “flogging” or “slogging” (unappetizing alternatives all) might, in truth, be the word you seek.”
