Blogging Media

Blogs have been around much longer than the Facebooks and Twitters of today and have had a slightly different use. They have a lot in common with websites in that they provide a publishing platform for information and opinions, yet they were a precursor to truly social networking sites by allowing readers to comment on that information or those opinions and the authors and commenters to interact. Still, a blog can function perfectly fine without comments as readers tune in to read what authors have to say. While comments on a blog may be interesting to read, the number or lack of comments may be no indication of a blog's value or reach. In fact, some blogs involve the same steady cast of characters interacting with one another rather than acting like the open public forum they pretend to be. Another is primarily the blog’s author commenting on his own material. Most blogs involve a stream of anonymous readers who stop by to read and never comment.

Most blogging sites function the same way. The ones we highlight aren't so much different in function as in individual applications and processes. Most provide a basic application for free but offer additional services for a fee. If you want to try a blog, look over these and other sites and choose the one that seems to best fit your needs.
