Blogger's 7th Birthday

Free File Hosting at

7 years ago, Blogger was launched by Pyra Labs, today, Blogger is celebrating their birthday with a new logo (for a day, I guess). Blogger is credited for helping popularize blogging. On August 23, 1999, Evan Williams(co-founder of Blogger) posted on his blog,

We just launched a cool new tool at Pyra. It’s called Blogger. It’s an automated weblog publishing tool. Unlike Pitas, which, don’t get me wrong, is cool, Blogger FTP’s your updated weblog page to your own server after each post. This means you can have everything “under the same roof,” as Jack put it the other day. You retain complete control. In fact, no one even has to know you’re using Blogger. It just makes your life simplier. Check it out. (Coming soon: Automated XML channel creation.)

The new logo with the dog is because of that whole “1 human year = 7 dog year” thing.
