Blogosphere

by Chelsea Anne U. Murphy of 3AD7

From what I have learned, the blogosphere is made up of all blogs and their interconnections. It is all of the blogs on the Internet as a collective whole. The term “blogosphere” was first used on September 10, 1999 by Brad L. Graham. The term resembles the older word logosphere (from Greek logos meaning word, and sphere, interpreted as world), “the world of words”, the universe of discourse.

Within the blogosphere, several sub-communities have developed. These communities are largely divided by genre. 

Examples are 

  • News blogs
  • Gossip blogs 
  • Food blogs
  • Fashion blogs
  • Health blogs
  • Scientific blogs 
  • Genealogy blogs
