The history of blogging  begins with various digital predecessors, even if the word “blog” did not exist until the late 1990s. Digital communities existed before “blogging” became popular.

Members of the online journaling community were a part of the Open Pages webring. One of the early bloggers is generally regarded as Justin Hall, who started his eleven-year personal blogging career in 1994 as a Swarthmore College student, together with Jerry Pournelle.  Another pioneering blog was Wearable Wireless Webcam, a text, video, and image-based online shared journal of a person’s private life that was broadcast live from a wearable computer and EyeTap device to a website in 1994.
