International Weblogger’s Day Date in the current year: June 14, 2021

International Weblogger’s Day

International Weblogger’s Day, also known as InWeDay, is celebrated on June 14 every year. This unofficial holiday was created to bring together bloggers from around the world and to promote blogging as a way to express yourself and engage in dialogue with people from different countries and backgrounds.

A blog (short for “weblog”) is an online diary consisting of discrete, often informal entries called posts. Most blogs are primarily textual, but they may include other types of content such as images, videos, music, and audio.

The term “weblog” was coined in 1997, and its short form, “blog”, was first used in 1999. That same year, Pyra Labs launched Blogger, one of the first blog-publishing platforms that allow users to create and run blogs for free without any programming background.

In 2004, around 500 bloggers from over 40 countries supported the idea of creating a holiday that would unite blogging enthusiasts from around the world. The inaugural International Weblogger’s Day was held on June 14, 2004. On the occasion of the holiday, bloggers write special posts for their online diaries. In some cities, special meetings are organized where bloggers can meet “offline”.

Unfortunately, the popularity of International Weblogger’s Day has decreased considerably over the recent years.

Thank you very much .Take care.
