happy birthday bloggers

So I guess today is the 10th anniversary of the invention of the blog. Congrats all you people who put your personal shit online. We all deserve a big tmi. Me, I'm in bed and completely wiped (yes, I was snoozing during communion yesterday if you spotted me).

Here are the details if you are curious:
The term "weblog" was coined by Jorn Barger ( on 17 December 1997. The short form, "blog," was coined by Peter Merholz, who jokingly broke the word weblog into the phrase we blog in the sidebar of his blog in April or May of 1999. As of September 2007, blog search engine Technorati was tracking more than 106 million blogs.

Yippee. Let's all have some punch or something. I'm going back to sleep.
