    There are basically five types of bloggers, the political blogger, the philosophical blogger, the religious blogger, the light hearted blogger and the blogger extraordinaire. The political and religious blogger are there for a cause, hisher participation, to put forward a position and convince other bloggers of what they see “as the way”. The philosophical blogger explores topics with an intellectual and profound thrust, exhibiting hisher prowess of the subject matter, but avoiding any sense of being dogmatic or indignant. The light hearted blogger goes with the flow. Heshe may have just stumbled on the post and participate with or without a true knowledge, or any real sense allegiance to any one cause.

    Which ever the blogger, it is often hoped that by this potpourri of informal interaction, everyone will leave with some information or awareness that was not there before coming on the blog.
