Blogs are different things for different people.

You'll hear different opinions everywhere as to whether aspiring authors should do blogs, but one thing that seems consistent is that you should try and keep a diary - it's just another way to practice writing.

My main blog (my livejournal one) is my diary, my personal support group. Whatever I'm going through, I can talk about there, and there are people who I trust who can offer me advice, virtual chocolate, or just hugs. I also like that on livejournal, I can choose to make some posts only viewable to certain people - that way I really can talk about anything I want to.
And it's not just for negative things - I talk about my day-to-day life, and my writing - pretty much anything, really.

I never had a blog. Is it recommended that a writer get one? And why? What do people put on their blogs? :/

lots of different things, some keep it like a diary, others discuss writing or politics or book reviews.

You should take a look around, blogs aren't for everyone though and i definitely don't think 'they are essential

If you go into the introductions page, one of the stickies at the top is a list of names, aliases and blogs. Maybe you could have a look through some of them to get an idea of some things people do with blogs.
Many agents also keep blogs nowadays, which can be very interesting and helpful, so consider finding one or two of them to read.

Thank you Emily!!!!

I made it so that in my new query that i'm like right now about to send {i'm not even joking i'm writing it right now XD} i can send the agent to this site and let him find out about me and my book!

I looked at that, but i'm not sure if my site can have that.....

yes, blogspot. I click on Post a comment OR comments, the same blog page continues to show up. Is it because people have added captchas?

I have updated my blog. I wouldn't mind some sort of response if you remember the film I am talking about and if you too thought you were mad whenever you thought about this film because you had no idea what it was called and you wondered if people wouldn't believe this film was real. I want to see if I'm not alone.

Even right at the bottom? Some blogs you have to look at the last comment posted, and it says 'post reply' or something similar. This has confused me in the past, because I haven't been able to find it.
