A few days ago, I was sitting with my partner and Ed Cureg, a close friend from Washington, D.C. We were talking about my blogging. My friend asked how long I had been blogging and how had I gotten the idea to blog in the first place. I knew exactly why and related to him how my good friend Greg Kaspar, who was not only a wonderful writer but also a professional photographer and blogger, talked me into starting to blog in 2010. Because I had always hoped to write something publishable, it seemed like a wonderful idea. With the help of my friend, I found a blogging opportunity at Word Press. I promised myself that I would blog every other day rather than every day as I didn’t want the blogging to become a chore. At this point, Ed seemed satisfied with my explanation for starting to blog, but he had one more question: “Where did the word ‘blog’ come from?” I had never thought of that, so we went right away to the source of everything: The word “blog” came from the fusion of two words: “web” and “log.” Now, 725 blogs later, you know the rest of the story.
