Today, thanks to blogging, the publishing industry has found an convenient outlet to discover promising writers. Apart from personal blogs there’s the likes of Mashable and TechCrunch that are considered bibles for information and ‘gyaan’ as it were. Ever wondered how it all came about? The trend of blogging was all started by Justin Hall, a journalist and entrepreneur who is known as the pioneer blogger with his blog links.net.
A graduate of Swarthmore College, Justin kicked off his web-based diary Justin’s Links from the Underground in 1994. This blog offered one of the earliest tours of the World Wide Web. Over time, the site focused on Justin’s life. In 2004, The New York Times Magazine referred to Justin as the founding father of personal blogging. #TechTimeline
