Blogs are very influential!
That's actually an understatement. Blogs rule the online world! Google loves blogs! Many people rely on blogs to provide them with fast, convenient, reliable and credible information. I think all of the online information I have accumulated from the past years for my research came from blogs and social media networks.
Regardless of what others are saying, the information gathered from blogs are from real people with real experiences and real feelings. Each and everyone has different reasons why they have started blogging, each one has their own unique style of writing and expressing, but many share a common passion to reach out to the world - generously and with open arms - to make a socially interconnected world.
Bloggers are well motivated individuals with the ultimate goal and desire to express (and somehow unknowingly impress) and share their opinions and emotions - heartfelt and cherished experiences straight from the heart and soul. The readers may accept, object, and/or reject, but one thing is for sure - blogs truly influence people.
