Blogging boosts your social life

Australian researchers reveal that blogging boosts your social life by helping you feel less isolated, more connected to a community and more satisfied with your friendships, both online and face-to-face. From ABC:
Bloggers reported a greater sense of belonging to a group of like-minded people and feeling more confident they could rely on others for help.

All respondents, whether or not they blogged, reported feeling less anxious, depressed and stressed after two months of online social networking.

"So going onto MySpace had lifted the mood of all participants in some way," Ms Moore said.

"Maybe they'd just made more social connections."
