Engadget's Darren Murph nabs Guinness World Record for most blog posts ever written!
Engadget ^ | Oct 5th, 2010 | Joshua Topolsky

Posted on 10/05/2010 12:17:10 PM PDT by FreedomCalls

We always knew Darren Murph had oodles of talent and was extremely prolific -- but now the man has got the paper to seriously prove it. Our own Mr. Murph was just awarded the Guinness World Record for most posts ever by a blogger. Not only is this a first for Darren, it's a first for Guinness as well, creating a new category for the group. Darren joined Engadget in July of 2006 (his first post is here), and almost four years to the day (when these numbers were submitted to Guinness) he'd arrived at 17,212 individual posts (since surpassed, of course). That's single posts on Engadget, Engadget HD, and Engadget Mobile, not duplicated work. We obviously couldn't be more proud of Darren and the work he's done (and continues to do) here, and we think this is an amazing feat for one writer.

I have almost that many myself just here at FR alone.

I'm sure there are plenty here who have far surpassed Mr. Murph. Post your totals (Should be at the top of the page here: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/my/).

I think someone with a much larger number than Mr. Murph (like yourself) should apply to the Guinness Book people for the record.

Not me.

I wonder how many “post” Jerry Pournelle has? His is the oldest “blog”.

I wonder if they included Jerry Pournelle, the guy who invented the “weblog” before there WAS an “internet” (he started his “daybook”, which “was” a “blog” in the BIX network). It’s still going strong:

Yeah, but...FR isn’t a Blog. Or so I hear when the subject comes up.

I wonder if they considered those who have been using .plan files with Finger since the 70s. Many were later connected to the WWW, instantly turning them into blogs.

1. Constitution Day has posted a total of 430 threads and 41,577 replies.

2. If I've seen it once, I've seen people whining 1000 times that FR is not a blog. So, I suppose this is an apples vs. oranges comparison.
