How Blogs Keep You Updated On New Information
For most people with the internet, the local news just doesn’t cut it for us anymore. We want personal, in depth stories that most local news broadcasts aren’t willing to cover. Or maybe you like knowing what’s going on locally but you hate having to be on a time schedule. You are forced to listen to forty minutes of negative reports that you’ve already seen, just to hear the new story.
Luckily for us there are blogs available online that keep readers updated on the latest information. You are even able to find all of your favorite television stations broadcasters online. News blogs are great for people who are interested in reading about specific topics because the posts are often categorized by topic. For example, recently blogs have erupted on the scene and have taken American political opinion by storm. Blogs and political opinion happen to play a large role in American politics now.
But blogs aren’t limited to just politics. You can even find bloggers commenting on recent news events. When the US was bombing Iraq, bloggers of Iraqi citizens were very popular. This is where blogs really give the reader the real information from someone who is there, at the scene. It’s pretty obvious that traditional media, like the news on TV, is controlled by big business. Content is very filtered before it gets to you. I don’t know about you, but I don’t like my news filtered by anyone.
You can take advantage of blog RSS feeds to keep updated on the latest events and posts. Google Reader is also a free handy tool that will allow you to keep updated on all of your favorite blogs, all in one spot.
Nowadays I prefer blogs over watching the news, simply because I like to get the facts without having to wait through a commercial.
