As the class has been wrapping up on the blogs, it occurred to me that this blog project is an extension of our blog theme.  We created blogs through the internet.  Each blog had a specific purpose: to research a historical subject, compose poems about the subject, and inform the readers about a particular modern, social or political phenomenon.  The internet allows our classmates to breeze through interesting posts at their leisure, through their laptops.  In the past, a project like this could only be done through posters or creating a book.

Blogs are a new medium that quickly inform their readers through visual stiumuli and important information.  Reading blogs are usually free, allowing readers of all backgrounds, socioeconomic statuses, and intelligence to read them (so long as they have access to the internet).  Unlike most Facebook pages and Twitter accounts, blogs are often formal and have a specific purpose.
