The proposed classification is based on two dimensions: style and content. Regarding style, there are interactive weblogs and the closed weblogs mostly based on whether the weblog author allows for comments on the weblog. In relation to the content, there are many sorts of weblogs: personal topics, political/social/economic commentaries, information technology, etc. Merging the styles and the contents, some types are suggested: personal journal, links galore, interactive commentary, one-way commentary, hodge-podge, etc. In addition, Mernit  proposes eight types of weblogs according to the author of the weblog: the professional journalist; the non-traditional journalist; bloggers focused on a specific theme; the education community; the self-expression/journaling crowd; the
business/marketing/promotion community; business weblogs behind the firewall; and the experimenters and innovators.
