I started a blog called Boo Cancer, You Suck as a safe place for me to process what I was going through.
The amount of love and support that was given to me through the blog was incredible.
I was surprised at the number of people who started following my blog.
I jumped onto the livejournals and began to crawl from blog to blog.
That was the first line of my first blog post on Open Revolt, my Xnet site.
Everyone sent me the articles to blog, but it was the last thing I wanted to do.
I started a new category on my blog for this, AbusesOfAuthority, and filed them away.
It had hopped from blog to blog, turning into a full-blown movement without my noticing.

Word Origin and History for blog
1998, short for weblog (which is attested from 1994, though not in the sense "online journal"), from (World Wide) Web + log. Joe Bloggs (c.1969) was British slang for "any hypothetical person" (cf. U.S. equivalent Joe Blow); earlier blog meant "a servant boy" in one of the college houses (c.1860, see Partridge, who describes this use as a "perversion of bloke"), and, as a verb, "to defeat" in schoolboy slang. The Blogger online publishing service was launched in 1999.
