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.
