If the Internet has fostered anything, it's self-expression. Bloggers of all ages, types and interests regularly convene on the Web to share their thoughts and feelings with the rest of the world.

Family-focused blogs have a different approach. They're designed to create a narrative around your family's life and to share those experiences with friends and relatives. You can post anything you want (even video and pictures) to keep a digital record you and your loved ones can enjoy. If it's strictly for friends and family, you can protect your blog from the rest of the Web with a password, but you might not want to keep your kin all to yourself. It's not unusual for engaging family blogs to become extremely popular, and while you're probably not going to be the next Kate Gosselin, a little e-fame feels pretty good!
