On May 24, 1999, is the first use of the term "blog" on this site. (The title was added later since my posts were untitled in that distant era).
Brad posted about exactly the same thing the day before me so he got the OED reference, darn him. 🙂
I was working with Ev & Meg on a contract project at HP at that time, so I was almost certainly the vector for Peter’s "wee blog" to be converted to verb form "we blog" and thence to the name Blogger.
I had Blogger blog #11 and helped test this new little "side project" of the Pyra gang. The rest is history. Good times, good times.
As Brad puts it so well, happy birthday, you awkward, uneuphonious little word!
