The blogs vary widely in size - some have just a few posts, some 100s. All feature content which will help you in your coursework and exam work, and generally help you to boost your knowledge and understanding of the media.
Most blogs contain a lot of 'links lists' - lists of sites, articles and other articles for further reading/viewing, and to help with coursework research, exam revision, homeworks and class activities.
