Blogging has had a huge impact on journalism as well. If you look into some of your favorite writers and journalists, there's a very good chance that you may find that they have their own blog aside from their job for a publication. Most journalists have their own blogs because it gives them a chance to express themselves in different ways and gain traffic to their sites and the site of their publication. Having your own blog allows you to create your own style and voice and share that style with your audience.
Keeping a blog, posting often (which I personally need to start doing more), and even sharing different fun things can make your blog extremely unique.
One of the main goals in journalism is to do things that have never been thought of before. The goal is to have a unique style that you can call your own in this constantly changing world of journalism. Blogs help you maintain that style and allow you the chance to show off your creativity and do things your way.
