Before Twitter, Whisper and Snapchat there was the Blog – the platform that made it possible for non-techies to publish on the internet. And if you grew up in the 90s, chances are you probably had one at some point – a Livejournal, a Blogger, a WordPress or Diaryland.

This year, the Blog turns 20. To mark the anniversary of the medium, we asked three blogging pioneers to look back on the transformation of the medium over the past two decades, and share their thoughts on new platforms like Snapchat and Twitter.

As someone whose first online platform was on Diaryland, I am surprisingly happy to see it get its proper mention in this Guardian piece. It was my first online community! It’s where I met my wife!
