Viral Blank

A Brief Summary Of Our Long History

We began our publication more than 6,000 years ago, whew, sounds like a long time, talk about throwback Thursday or #tbt. Our very first posts were petroglyphs, or writings on rocks, because as you might imagine we did not have luxuries such as computers or even papyrus to write on. It was the beginning chapter of Viral Blank’s storied history.

~4,000 B.C.

This was one of our very first news publications from around 4100 B.C. Due to faulty record-keeping we do not have the exact date but it is a close approximation. We used animal blood to color the word viral and carved the rest.

 

When Egypt invented papyrus paper out of the plant that goes by the same name, we quickly adopted it as our new favorite method for recording news. As this sample was by ViralBlank’s Egyptian correspondent, it was written in hieroglyphs.

~3,000 B.C.

The papyrus talks about an extramarital affair that pharaoh Ramesses IX had, and was from 1110 BC. This old newspaper of ours now sits in a swanky British museam.

 

Later in 1690 Viral Blank officially began its newspaper publication, revolutionazing how current-event information was distributed. This particular edition is from July 7, 1774.

~1690 A.D.

Our very first newspaper prints from the 17th century were destroyed by the U.S. government since according to them that form of communication was not sanctioned by laws. This paper from 1774 was in accordance with existing laws since by then free press was tolerated for the most part.

Hundreds of thousands of viral news publications over a 6,000 year span and our quest still is largely the same, to remain the top viral news outlet for the people and by the people.
