The TechZone has posted a new article call The Business Side Of Blogs. Here’s a clip:
Blogs began to emerge a few years ago as an on-line personal diary (open - allowing comments or closed - locking out inputs).

It has been cited as the place that can help make or break a company, product or political candidate. br />
