Welcome to Excitement Factories blog # 1. So what are we doing here?
Frankly I hated the name blog until I actually looked up how it came about.
“The term “weblog” was coined by Jorn Barger on 17 December 1997. The short form, “blog”, was coined by Peter Merholz, who jokingly broke the word weblog into the phrase “we blog” in the sidebar of his weblog Peterme.com in April or May 1999.
Ok so that’s kind of cool. It tells me that the coiner of the phrase blog had a sense of humor and didn’t take himself too seriously.
Though some of the topics I will be blogging about are quite serious, such as plastics in the ocean, the environment and the plight of animals globally – both terrestrial and aquatic, we will also be talking about fun stuff like
what’s the best breed of dog for your boat, adventure stories, cutting-edge
tech and places on this planet that you should visit.
Ok so its whatever I feel like writing about. Welcome aboard and hang on.
Our next blog: The best dog for your boat. A five part series on man’s best
friend and how to bring them along for the ride.
