- Journals: Like a personal diary, these are used to record a sort of memoir in progress.
- Filters: These usually provide links and commentary to other articles or information posted throughout the web, often creating a mixture of original content and information from outside resources.
- K-blogs: K stands in the case for “knowledge,” and the purpose of these blogs is to pass on information. They usually are made primarily of original content written by the blogger.
- Combination: A large number of blogs are a mixture of all of the above: journals, filters, and k-blogs.
