Book News To Blog or Not to Blog
By Joyce Dixon
Weblogs first appeared in 1997 and were viewed as a replacement for mailing lists or personal web sites. These “web logs” were new programs that made editing and uploading easier than web pages for the novice. Yet, they didn’t really take off till 1999, when blogs were easier to view from mobile handhelds and worked well for announcement style journalism.
