Industry uses blogging to test new products, social advocate’s blog to raise awareness of important causes, and ministries use blogging to assist in the “equipping of the saints.”

Guests include Kent Shaffer (churchrelevance.com), Tim Challies (challies.com and discerningreader.com) and Kendra Fletcher (preschoolersandpeace.com).

  1. On the contrary, the origins of blogging, and the use of the term are quite easy to discovey 🙂

    “The term “weblog” was coined by Jorn Barger[51] 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 Peterme.com in April or May of 1999.[52][53][54] Shortly thereafter, Evan Williams at Pyra Labs used “blog” as both a noun and verb (“to blog,” meaning “to edit one’s weblog or to post to one’s weblog”) and devised the term “blogger” in connection with Pyra Labs’ Blogger product, leading to the popularization of the terms”
