Here is a link to the old post: Journals and Blogs Similar?
Here is how I would write that post today:
“What’s your purpose for creating a blog? Did you create one to expand upon your writing skills? Perhaps sign up and use it as an online journal to vent out your frustrations?
It depends on the necessary tools to which you can utilize your blog and discover what captures a reader’s attention. For some individuals, they blog to write stories while others use to find a voice in a cause for two different intentions: 1) they are passionate about their dreams for advocacy or 2) they have a voice crying out for help.
Everyone has their own definition of blogging and what their intentions are to create one. Journals are hand-written, containing personal information to vent out anger while bloggers create a website to gain experience in the media industry as a hobby. In ways, journals and blogs can be the same while they can also be different. “
