First Thing to be a Non-Blog Blog, Now Blogs, Sort of

I’ve been saying the same thing for a long time, so it’s gratifying to see I’m in good company: First Things’ section “The Public Square” was the first blog, albeit in print. Richard John Neuhaus tries to deny that fact on First Things’ new web-blog (that supposedly also isn’t a blog; whatever it is, it’s certain to be frequently viewed in my feed reader):

Andrew Sullivan — who could be a much nicer and more sensible person if he really tried — once remarked that, as the writer of The Public Square, I was the world’s first blogger. That is not true.
