Who Started Blogging?

An archive topics who really started blogging? When did you start blogging?

Wayback Yahoo360's birth it was the rising of a certain Generation Y blogging as I remember before Yahoo360 kills its website; therefore all of us in Yahoo360 blogging group started to use Multipy, Friendster and MySpace before microblogging Facebook and Twitter became popular. I guess that's when blogger.com and wordpress.com began booming from individual bloggers around the world after Yahoo360.

1. Who Was The World's First Blogger? Sei Sh┼Źnagon, b. 966: "Her writings were eventually collected and published in The Pillow Book (public library) in 1002. An archive of pictures and illustrations, records of interesting events in court, and daily personal thoughts, many in list-form, this was arguably the world’s first 'blog' by conceptual format and Sh┼Źnagon the world's first blogger." http://www.theawl.com/2012/11/who-was-the-worlds-first-blogger 

2. Wikipedia's History of Blogging "While the term "blog" was not coined until the late 1990s, the history of blogging starts with several digital precursors to it. Before "blogging" became popular, digital communities took many forms, including Usenet, commercial online services such as GEnie, BiX and the early CompuServe, e-mail lists[1] and Bulletin Board Systems (BBS). In the 1990s, Internet forum software, such as WebEx, created running conversations with "threads". Threads are topical connections between messages on a metaphorical "corkboard". Some[specify] have likened blogging to the Mass-Observation project of the mid-20th century. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_blogging

3. Wikipedia's Definition of Blog "A blog (a contraction of the words web log)[1] is a discussion or informational site published on the World Wide Web and consisting of discrete entries ("posts") typically displayed in reverse chronological order (the most recent post appears first). Until 2009 blogs were usually the work of a single individual, occasionally of a small group, and often covered a single subject. More recently "multi-author blogs" (MABs) have developed, with posts written by large numbers of authors and professionally edited. MABs from newspapers, other media outlets, universities, think tanks, interest groups and similar institutions account for an increasing quantity of blog traffic. The rise of Twitter and other "microblogging" systems helps integrate MABs and single-author blogs into societal newstreams. Blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blog

4. CNET's records Who's the Father of Blogs? "Blogs: The evolution Sometime in 1971 Stanford's Les Earnest creates the "finger" protocol." http://news.cnet.com/2100-1025_3-6168681.html
