How do you blog?

A nurse writing a paper for school focusing on the value of blogs for advanced practice nurses asked me the questions listed below. It would be great if you can post your own answers in the comment section below.

The blog posts and news items from the RSS feeds are about 2,000-3,000 per day = 20,000 per week.

The big five among the general medical journals (NEJM, JAMA, Lancet, BMJ, Annals of Int Medicine) plus 10 allergy journals, plus Medscape, Reuters Health and WebMD.
