I received following comment from Mr.Swaminathan
Looking at the size of the blog content, you could have put this as a Facebook status message instead of a blog post. இந்த தம்மாதூண்டு மேட்டருக்கு நான் பேஸ்புக்ல இருந்து உம் பிளாக்ல போய் படிச்சிட்டு திரும்ப இங்க வந்து கமெண்ட் போட்டு….உஸ்ஸ்ஸ்ஸப்பா..முடியல (For this small post I had to from FB to your blog and then come back to FB to post my comment….)
First I’d like to explain Swami what BLOG is and how the term originated;
The term “weblog” was coined by Jorn Barger on 17 December 1997. The short form, “blog”, was coined by Peter Merholz, who jokingly broke the word weblog into the phrase “we blog” in the sidebar of his blog Peterme.com in April or May 1999. Shortly thereafter, Evan Williams at Pyra Labs used “blog” as both a noun and verb (“to blog”, meaning “to edit one’s weblog or to post to one’s weblog”)…
So, Mr.Swami I BLOG to maintain weblog of my daily activities so that I can look back at a later stage… So, my Blog is my diary and it is for my friends to know what I do… If I post things on FB my log gets lost or diluted over the stream activities on FB…
Now you get my point on why I prefer my Blog than FB??
