Tracing Back the Philippine’s Blogging History
Blogs have been around almost as internet was introduced in the Philippines in the early parts of 1995. During those times, the early bloggersdidn’t have name for what they were doing besides calling it a personal website or an online journal.Back then, if you want to have your own blog, you’d have to learn the basics of HTML and a little bit of the technical aspects like FTP (File Transfer Protocol).Besides that, when one has to publish or update their site, it was done manually – editing the pages, adding links and pictures and then uploading the affectedfiles or webpages. It was a tedious and time-consuming effort, added to that the scarcity of internet connectivity, updating a website or blog takes a great deal of effort and patience. Thus, the frequency of updates was scarce and nowhere near with what we enjoy today.Though there is no accurate and definite way of determining the timeline of blogging in the Philippines, it is a great help that Internet Archives’ The Wayback Machine (http://web.archive.org/) is able to recover websites and blogs from way back in 1996. Thru the Wayback Machine, we can verify the existence of blos from 16 u until toda.

blogs getting a quarter of a million pageviews and over 1 million hits every month.In August of 2004, The Philippines According to Blogs project was re-launched at PinoyBlog (www.pinoyblog.com) which now serves as the first and onlyblog community portal with over 1,500 pinoy blog members. Two months later in October, Inq7.net launched their own blog, entitled Talking Points. It drewmuch attention from bloggers which raised the question as to what technically constitutes a real blog.The following month, November 2004, i.PH (www.i.ph) was launched primarily as a low-cost personalized domain name integrated into a blogging systemcalled Calliope. This was the first time a local company introduced a customized blog product and hosting service both for free and paid.In March 2005, Manila Bulletin (www.mb.com.ph) also launched Blog-O-Rama for both their online website and their Sunday technology edition. The columnis handled by Annalyn Jusay (www.annalyn.net) which features articles and interviews about Pinoy blogs and bloggers both local and abroad.The latest historical event in the Philippine blogging scene was the recently concluded 1st Philippine Blogging Summit (www.iblogph.org) held at the UPDiliman last May 7, 2005. It was organized by Internet Society Program (ISP) of the U.P. College of Law, headed by Atty. JJ Disini (disini.i.ph). With over 150participant bloggers and blog enthusiasts, the event aimed to spread awareness of blogging and it’s socio-political relevance in the country. Guest speakersincluded famous bloggers like Dean Alfar(deanalfar.blogspot.com) and Comm. Dondi Mapa (1mjobs.blogspot.com) of the CICT.In the last couple of years, the pinoy blogging community grew from a few hundreds to a couple of thousands. This is good indication that this geometricalgrowth will bring blogging almost at par with mainstream media. Blogging is still in it’s infancy in the Philippines but recent developments show that it haspotential to grow and revolutionize our medium of communication, and probably influence Philippine society.
