Blogs are conversational and interactive, as opposed to the traditional, static, business-end of a website, providing support, research, education and insight, authority and passion as well as newsworthy content.

In October 2012, there were approximately 77 million Tumblr and 56.6 million WordPress blogs. Blogger is the most popular blogging service used today.
