One of the first gay bloggers -- and the man credited with coining the term "blogosphere" -- died recently at his home in St. Louis at the age of 41.

Police say Brad Graham died of natural causes, reports Bilerico.com. He presently maintained the website The BradLands, but he began blogging in the late '90s. In 1999 he discussed the new word "blog" and wrote:

"Where are we headed? Will personal publishing soon be described as being "as simple as falling off a blog"? Shall we see ultra-conservative gays start weblogs and dub themselves Blog Cabin Republicans? Track the tides with an Ebb Blog? Is blog- (or -blog) poised to become the prefix/suffix of the next century? Will we soon suffer from (and tire of) blogorreah? Despite its whimsical provenance, it's an awkward, homely little word. Goodbye, cyberspace! Hello, blogiverse! Blogosphere? Blogmos?"

Graham also served as a publicist for the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis.
