History of Blogging

Blogging is really a great revolution for the people who wanted to post their thoughts without edited. When computer was invented nobody thought this industry will grow to this enormous height. Actually to say computer is like convergence of all technology present today. From education, data management, security forces to all levels it is now being like a daily life. The concept of blogging has caught the head of millions and it started with a great bang. With just a few mouse clicks you are connected to the whole world. Then share your opinions, comments, posts make the blogging world full of new thoughts, new ideas and new energy to live life.

Once I had read that if the industry of car making has developed at the pace of today's computer industry then now car could be bought more cheaper than a bicycle and would be faster than a jet plane.

This line itself tells the significance of this great technology. So I salute it for the convenience it has created in our lives. BIG THUMBS UP TO YOU!

Here is a brief timeline of the history of blogging:
