Blogster is a good blogging sites because it lets you create you own page but it has alot of other interesting things to do such as creating quizzes or polls or even surveys. It allows you to share anything with anyone.
Blogster makes it easier for people to find others who share the same hobbies, interests, thoughts, beliefs and more. However a disadvantage could be the fact that if you check out the profile of anyone, that person will know you did. Moreover this application can’t work unless you have an internet connection. Users should be 13 and above to use Blogster.
