The LifeType project started in February 2003 when its leader, Oscar Renalias, needed a set of dynamic scripts for his personal web page. Even though he did not know about the idea of weblogs back then, the outcome of the first iteration of the project already resembled one.

A few weeks later Francesc, another of the founding members, suggested that developing a blog with support for multiple users and blogs could be a better idea, and so pLog 0.1 was released on September 2, 2003, featuring most of the features that are still part of the core nowadays: multi-user and multi-blog from the ground up, template engine, localizable and extensible via plugins.

pLog 1.0 was released in April 2005, and later that year, because of trademark issues, pLog changed its name into LifeType. LifeType is a PHP and MySQL application, and is licensed under the GNU GPL (General Public License).
