Blogs

Blogs are online journals that combine text, images, links and videos to make a statement, share an experience, or inform others. These types of websites tend to be informal and are primarily used as a channel for communication and self-expression. An important feature that most blogs have is the ability for visitors to provide feedback by leaving comments on specific entries. In recent years, blogs have gained popularity among many people and organizations.
