Different Types of Blogs

This service has made it possible for many types of people to get "published", a way to get ideas out that is different from anything else. There are several main categories of blogs in my mind.
Complaining Blogs. This is one of the most popular kinds. It is exactly what it sounds like. On complaining blogs, you can hear people gripe about Apple, Crocs, Justin Bieber, and life in general. If you are funny, you might be able to get a fast following, but be careful, or you might just be seen as a whiner.

Photo Blogs: Photo blogs are a popular Blog Of Note choice. They aren't my favorite, though.  If you run with this type of blog, be sure to take pictures of something original, not just pictures of your pet dog. If the pictures aren't funny or beautiful, no one has any reason to look at them.

Inspirational: Some of my posts here are in this category. If you have something meaningful to say, you might get a bunch of followers who respect your view of life. Your posts might be quite long, but luckily, no one expects you to post every day.

Comic: There are very few of these on the blogosphere, because they take a lot of time and talent. The ones you can find, however, are like finding a gold mine.  These would be my favorite, but they take a long time to update because posts can take many hours to do.

Adventure: These blogs are fast paced, fun to read, but can be short lived if just about one trip. Blogs about interesting jobs go here too.

Journal: These are great ways to stay in touch with family+friends. These are a lot less commercial than above, and don't expect a large following, but these blogs can take the place of journals and help you improve yourself! My personal favorite.

What category does mine fit in? Well, my three main kinds of posts are a.) inspirational b.) about Star Wars or c.) about writing. Hmm. Let's just say my blog won't be picked for Blogs Of Note anytime soon.
What kind of blog do you write?

ps. That picture is of my brother at the USS Midway in San Diego. Why did I include it? It just felt like a good picture.

(fangirl flapping of arms and running around in circles) (eee) (ignore this)(spoilers for Son of Neptune)

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO

love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

updates on life(aka excuses to post tumblr gifs)

If I had to describe my life in one word right now, it'd be cold. Brr.

Let's see..what's happening?

I got my back bend kickover from le ground in acro. It's awesome. :) I never thought I'd be able to do it XD

Of course, it's not with straight legs(yet). And I don't hit my splits in the middle. Come to think of it, it's actually sort of a back flop-over.

I read Skeleton Key and Eagle Strike(next two Alex Rider books) last night. The series has gotten better, but it still has the same problems. Just like Suzanne Collins makes the simplest events seem chilling and scary, the numerous random deaths in Alex Rider are just like "meh...whatever."

They all still have similar plots. Such as:

1. The book opens with some sort of mysterious circumstance. Usually an assasination or an exchange where one of the members gets stabbed in the back(sometimes literal, sometimes not) and killed. Either way, someone usually dies.
2. Alex Rider is hanging out drinkin…
