There are so many great blogs in Texas but Dallas Fort Worth really knows how to do it up right. These are the best Dallas bloggers and I’m sure this list will continue to grow.
Every website needs to have a blog but some sites are only about the blog. Blogs evolved from online diaries and journals in the mid-90s. At that time, internet users were already running personal web pages where they published regular updates about their personal lives, thoughts, and social commentary.
The term web log was first used during the late 90s, which later became ‘weblog’, then ‘we blog’, and finally just ‘blog’. Some may remember blogging via blogger.com (and some still do). In 1999, the popular blogging website Blogger.com was launched, which was later acquired by Google in February 2003. And then WordPress launched and released its first version as a blogging platform in May 2003.
Today, WordPress is the world’s most popular blogging platform powering over 30% of all websites on the internet.
