Blogs are Web-based logs generally maintained by individuals or organizations. They are meant to be updated regularly with commentary or to recap of events and can include graphics or video. Blogs can include a range of features from discussion boards, to internet donations to live chats and online voting. Compared to traditional media, blogs are faster, cheaper and more interactive. When compared to other media, the opportunity for involvement provided by blogs is hands down the best option. Blogs are the way to go.
