* ''Podcast/ItMakesASound'' is the fictional amateur radio show of music superfan Deirdre Gardner. Her official website [[https://itmakesasound.tumblr.com www.itmakesasound.rocks]] is as ambitious in promise and endearingly [[StylisticSuck slapdash]] in execution as her show. (the crayon and cardstock background she's provided has coffee stains on it) She invites her listeners to contact her through it, to send her their completed "Unpacking the Attic" freewriting exercises, and information on where to find a cassette tape player.

* Many characters from ''Series/TheWestWing'' have Twitter accounts detailing their lives today. Some of the actors from the show tweet with the characters and [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome several real life politicians have done so as well]]. According to the characters' tweets, in their universe Obama and his administration are characters on the show "the West Wing". The real life president being fictional to them doesn't stop them from very actively taking part in campaigning for him.

With the rise of the internet, a new method of [[NoFourthWall breaking the fourth wall]] has been developed; a blog kept under the alias of one of the fictional heroes (or, occasionally, villains) in a comic, show or book. The writing will be done "in character," and readers may be allowed to correspond with the character as if they were a real person.

* It can provide a new angle to the existing plotline, by writing the story in first-person perspective rather than the omniscient view of the story that the audience usually gets. This can be highly effective if there are blogs for different characters in the same show - TheDitz will probably have a very different take on things from TheSmartGuy, for example.
* It can offer supplemental stories, filling in the time that the characters were "off air" or providing relief from the main storyline, such as doing a silly entry or personality when the {{Canon}} plotline is rather dark. May also fill in backstory or provide more CharacterFocus than the canon can afford to provide, or keep the audience informed on a character who is currently OutOfFocus or uninvolved in the present [[RotatingArcs rotating arc]]. This is a popular use of the Character Blog for webcomics, which often don't have the time or space to fit in all the stories an author would like to tell - it's much quicker to write a text entry than to draw a comic.

It's not without its pitfalls, however. It's much more difficult to hide things such as WriterOnBoard or CreatorBreakdown when writing a blog, and the assumed identity may slip from time to time. Conversely, a writer assuming the identity of a character with strong {{Jerkass}} tendencies has a fine line to walk between portraying the character accurately, and using the fictional personality as an excuse to sneer at any fan who ventures a question via the blog. A lack of professionalism in the blog's writing may result in an extreme example of the {{GIFT}} theory.

Apart from official blogs, it is a popular pastime among roleplayers to maintain fan-made blog accounts for specific fictional characters (and sometimes for convoluted permutations, e.g. alternate universe versions, de-aged versions, genderbent versions etc.) Participation in JournalRoleplay games typically consists of maintaining a blog and interacting with other characters. Favorite outlets include Website/{{Tumblr}}, Website/{{Twitter}}, Website/LiveJournal and its clones, and the question-and-answer site [[Website/{{Formspring}} Formspring.me]] (now offline).
