Around 1997 I wrote my first blog post. The idea of blogging did not exist yet. I made a blogging system in 8 hours (including some small coding mistakes), just before our plane left for our India adventure. During our trip we uploaded photo’s with little stories attached. I am still searching the internet archives to find it back.
I never returned to the idea of blogging after that trip. But now I am back. I joined a Skillshare online course about building community with blogging in December of 2012. I did not really finish the class, because new ideas of helping bloggers to get the perfect blog post emerged. Nothing new there, I started my own internet company in 1995 and dropped out from university.
I always find it difficult to make a claim about an emerging idea. Best is to look at the context where it emerged. Without the Skillshare class from Jennifer Barbour, it would not have been here. So a big thanks to you!
