Can Blogging Boost Your Social Life?

Researchers at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia, looked into the psychological benefits of blogging and found that bloggers tend to feel a greater sense of connectedness to a particular community.

And some bloggers feel that they have a larger social support system behind them than those who do not blog.

The researchers also found that using social networks such as MySpace and Facebook, "lifted the mood of all participants (of the study) in some way."

So maybe we really can blog away the blues!
