5. Types of blogs
There are milions upon millions of blogs on the Web. But they tend to fall into these types:
- Personal blogs

News and views
News and television companies such as the BBC have many professional journalists who post stories and views about the latest events. Visitors can add their own opinions as well
Many companies run blogs to let their customers and clients know what is going on. Maybe new products coming up or progress being made on some project.
This is a type of blog where you post very short comments that others can follow. Twitter is the best example of a micro-blog. You can only post 140 characters with each entry, called a 'Tweet'. The entries become a running commentary about your life and interests.
Micro-blogs are becoming a very powerful way for professionals to find and keep in touch with each other. For example, maybe you are running a bed & breakfast business and you want to get in touch with others doing the same, then you just find the right people on Twitter to follow. Soon enough there are many B&B owners following each other and keeping in touch.
