What are Blogs?

Blogs, or web logs, are authored by individuals or group of individuals; they often invite commentary from readers. Blogs are frequently updated, and blog entries are displayed in reverse chronological order. 

Be aware that blogs often contain personal commentary and are not traditional peer-reviewed resources.

Monitor

To monitor blogs, use a blog “aggregator” with a built-in RSS reader.  A blog aggregator is a web tool that allows you to track and organize all of your favorite blogs and newsfeeds on your own personal page.

The aggregator services listed below are free, but require registration.   After registration, select the blogs and newsfeeds you want to monitor, and follow the directions to add blogs to your personal page.  To view the newest blog postings, visit your personal page.
