Vanity and Information blogs

A vanity blog is a web log that the author uses to talk about their life and discuss their views about whatever subject grabs them. I decided not to blatantly self promote myself and my own personal MySpace blog, so the vanity blog I chose is one of my MySpace friends that I subscribe to; Chris (the political scientist). Last Wed he had a joke blog about our age group and what we remember or lived through. He has one about tipping in restraurants and what he experienced and feels is right. He even talks about his political views and encourages his readers to get involved in his discussions.

An information blog is a forum for the authors own personal interests, like football or Notre Dame or in the case of the blog I picked,
Notre Dame Football. Since I love Notre Dame football, I thought this would be a great one. A Kevin Donahue writes this blog for the most part. I was impressed with the professional layout it had. It is almost like a news blog, but it is dedicated to college football and has different features and sections, one of them being my favorite college football team, Notre Dame.

And now to answer a few questions on this module:
Do you feel blogging particularly supports this type of journalism as compared to print media? Why or why not?
I think it does. When most of us read blogs or decide to subscribe to one, we pick ones that interest us. The vanity & information blogs still talk about current events or news articles. And they have an open forum so anyone can join in and discuss their views and help educate the masses.

What makes for a good info? Blog?
I think a good information blog consists of accurate information. On the ND blog, the author mentions the hideous uniforms they wore this last weekend against USC. Now if that were all he said about it, I would say eh. But he talks about where they originate, whey the supposedly brought these out and so on.

What makes for a good vanity blog?
A good vanity blog interacts with its audience. It talks about a multitude of things. It doesn’t repeat the same sentiment over and over again. And it is fun and entertaining.

In closing, I would have to say that my research done for this assignment supports my thesis statement on a level of five (based on a 1-5 scale).

I agree that because both vanity and information blogs talk about current events, it does support this type of journalism.
