They use the same technology but tend to be very targeted in terms of their subject matter and focus on a specific market area or niche. In fact, something to bear in mind: the most successful are set up with both an audience and a business focus in mind which they then stick to. Why? Because the audience they are looking to reach will expect it – that is why they were attracted to it in the first place and that is why they will return and recommend the blog to others. http://www.betterbusinessblogging.com/what-is-a-blog/#4 "Help your Website Everyday – Using Blogs" vDomainHosting, Inc 360-447-7384 "Help your Website Everyday Using Blogs".
