Character Blog

Go To
Contrary to what the title says, this was actually never daily.note 

"In his shocking 200th episode, Strong Bad turns the entire series on its ear. Will we ever see a 201? Is the reign of HREmails at hand? For the answers to these questions, be sure and NOT check out my blog. I haven't updated that thing in years!"
Strong Sad, Strong Bad Email #200 "email thunder"

With the rise of the internet, a new method of 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.

They are becoming increasingly popular, with many major series having some sort of Character Blog in operation. Quite a few webcomics like to employ these as well.

The Character Blog may serve several functions:

  • 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 — The Ditz will probably have a very different take on things from The Smart Guy, 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 Character Focus than the canon can afford to provide, or keep the audience informed on a character who is currently Out of Focus or uninvolved in the present 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 acts as a Fourth-Wall Mail Slot, allowing the fans to interact with the creators, with the alias of the fictional character as an intermediary.
  • Basically, it makes the character seem more real.

Usually, the Character Blog is seen as positive, a quirky addition that exists between Canon and Fanon; it adds to the story, but isn't mandatory reading.

Webcomic Time can be a headache to such blogs, since the comic may take several weeks to tell a day's worth of story, while the blog is kept in real time.

It's not without its pitfalls, however. It's much more difficult to hide things such as Writer on Board or Creator Breakdown 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 Internet Jerk in action.

It may also be confusing to young readers, or to people who stumble across the blog without being familiar with the show. It's unlikely, but the possibility exists that the character is mistaken for a real person, particularly if the source material is obscure.

Since a full-on blog can take a lot of work to update regularly, characters often instead create microblogs on Facebook or Twitter.

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 Journal Roleplay games typically consists of maintaining a blog and interacting with other characters. Favorite outlets include Tumblr, Twitter, LiveJournal and its clones, and the question-and-answer site (now offline).

May be part of a larger Alternate Reality Game. Compare Vlog Series. A complete work in this form is a variety of Log Fic.

Twitter and Tumblr have enough for for subpages.

Of course, the creators of many current works have their own accounts, which may (or may not) be more reliable than unofficial Character Blogs; anyone more interested in Word of God than Fan Wank should look for and verify these first.

Sub-pages and Examples:

    open/close all folders 

    Anime & Manga 

    Comic Books 

    Comic Strips 
  • Dethany in On the Fastrack has tweets presented on the official main page. Like Lindesfarne (see Kevin & Kell below), she appears to consider herself real but knows that Bill Holbrook chronicles much of her life in a comic strip.
    • Bud Spore used to have a blog titled "Spore Samples", but it died of disinterest.
  • For yet another Holbrook example, Roger in Safe Havens has a weekly blog.
  • Rat from Pearls Before Swine has a (fake) Twitter account.
  • April Patterson from the newspaper comic For Better or for Worse used to have a blog on that comic's website.
  • Not quite the same as a proper blog, but Mayor Dalton's Prostate has gotten its own Facebook fan page after Rex Morgan, M.D.'s discussions of the organ became a minor meme on The Comics Curmudgeon.
  • Cooper from the print comic Retail used to have one, and he mentioned Norm Feuti often, in a delicate mix of "reality" and comic reality. He also mentioned it in the strip, at one point stressing it was a very real blog.

    Fan Works 
Maintaning character blogs as a form of Fan Fiction or roleplay is a popular practice. In fact, many of the blogs linked elsewhere on this page are fan-made.

    Films — Live-Action 
  • The main characters of Cloverfield had Myspace accounts which they updated as viral marketing prior to the film's release. Many fans were heartbroken when they (understandably) stopped updating once the movie debuted.
  • A British design studio recreated the film Home Alone through tweets, including a Twitter page for every character who had a part, in realtime over Christmas 2009. They also did Home Alone 2: Lost in New York over Christmas 2010. They don't plan on doing Home Alone 3 or 4..." those movies suck. That is all."
  • The leading character of Saw 3D, Bobby Dagen, has a Twitter account, a Facebook account and a website. His support group, S.U.R.V.I.V.E. has a Facebook page and a blog with a few group members (a few survivors from past films, including Dr. Gordon, and just one of the new ones) posting about their experience in the Jigsaw traps and how Bobby is helping them heal.
  • In the lead-up to the release of District 9, alien refugee Christopher Johnson ran an anti-MNU propaganda blog in his native Starfish Language (but with English translations available at literally the click of a button), unsurprisingly called MNU Spreads Lies. The blog is, of course, no longer online and the URL now redirects to Sony's official site for the movie; luckily, every post has been archived.
  • Amanda Waller started a blog (written by her creator John Ostrander) as a tie-in to the Green Lantern (2011) movie.
  • Max Keeble, Troy McGinty, and presumably Jenna from Max Keeble's Big Move each have a Facebook account for unknown reasons.


    Live-Action TV 
  • BIA The two rivaling networks and all major characters have an official Instagram account, with the exception of Ana/Helena, Luan, and the parents.
  • Dawson's Creek was one of the first shows to include character diaries on the show's official website where fans could see what the characters were up to during the Summer breaks. During the Fall season, fans could access the characters' PC desktops where they could read e-mails and online chats relating to the episodes that had just aired.
  • Arrested Development: Oscar Bluth had a blog while he was in prison (when they thought he was his twin brother George), It wasn't a "real" blog though, in that it always had the same content. Later there was a Saddam Hussein body double, arrested in the infamous spider hole instead of the real Saddam. As seen on TV he claimed that the way you could tell them apart was because the Real Saddam had a scar, and "I'm no scar." He had a blog,, which looked just like except it was in Arabic.
  • The characters of the Buffyverse all have Twitter accounts that are coordinated and currently reenacting the series storyline. They are currently near the end of Season Three of Buffy.
    • The showrunners also created Cassie Newton's poetry website.
  • Serge, the robot butler in Caprica, has a twitter account. He provides little details about life on Caprica, and seems a lot more intelligent than his behavior in the show would suggest.
  • On Castle's official website Detective Ryan has one of these, called The Ryan Report, in which he gives his viewpoint on whatever case was worked on in that episode. Castle also has a Twitter account that during the season posts random bits and pieces, but has, for the last two summers, had him solving a mystery without the rest of the cast. A pretty well done mystery too. Occasionally made odd by the Twitter replying to Nathan Filion...
  • Greendale has a website.
    • Also, everyone in the study group has a twitter account, including Annie's Boobs.
  • While not exactly the same as the others, Hank Yarbo, from Corner Gas had a blog in one episode called Hank Talkin' which was, for a time, available on the official site. (however, it didn't extend from the three entries from the episode.)
  • During the first four seasons of Degrassi: The Next Generation, ALL the student characters had their own blogs. But once the show kept getting more extreme and melodramatic, they dropped it. You can find captions and screen shots of some of the entries on fan sites.
    • Most current student characters on Degrassi have Twitter accounts; none of the faculty do, including the longtime and current media-studies teachers although their actors' accounts are listed on the official page.
  • Martha Jones from Doctor Who has a MySpace page, with references to her family, Series 3, the animated serial The Infinite Quest, the novels she appears in, and the Terrible Zodin, an offscreen character who was referenced as far back as the Fifth Doctor era.
  • Senator Daniel Perrin from Dollhouse has a Twitter account.
  • Lloyd from Entourage has a blog on HBO's site.
  • Dr. Matt Hunter on General Hospital is on Twitter. The tweets are supposedly from Jason Cook in Hunter's character.
  • Some of the characters of Glee have their own Twitter accounts. Sue Sylvester's is truly epic.
  • Gossip Girl features in-verse vlog written by a mysterious Gossip Girl.
  • Several characters in Heroes have online blogs of some kind or another, including, not surprisingly, the geeky Hiro Nakamura and the hacker Hana Gitelman.
    • Several had MySpace pages as well, including Zach. The listing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and The Birdcage as favorite movies fueled speculation that the character was gay.
  • Barney from How I Met Your Mother has one, stemming from the fact that he frequently makes mention of it in the show, and puts a great deal of significance in it.
  • iCarly uses them as part of the extensive tie-in website.
  • The official website of the 2008 Knight Rider series had "Billy's Blog," ostensibly written by The Smart Guy from the show.
  • During the first two seasons of Lost, an online diary appeared on the ABC site supposedly written by one of the background characters (then picked up by a different background character in the second season.) The diary, however, was written by ABC's promotional department, not the show's writers, and conflicts with Canon emerged.
  • Several of the main characters from Misfits have official facebook and/or twitter accounts. It was apparently the first tv series to use twitter in such a way, as it actually featured characters posting comments about the show's events during the original broadcast of the episodes, to maintain a sense of soliloquy. The Smart Guy Simon also has a youtube account, where he posts footage of the other characters that he has supposedly recorded himself (most of it is just-for-fun, supplemental stuff, but one or two of his videos are vital to the plot). They've stepped things up a notch since season 2 began. The characters use twitter to verbally abuse each other on a regular basis.
  • Randy from My Name Is Earl has a blog on the NBC website.
  • The serial killer Carver from Nip/Tuck had a MySpace, in which he would post videos about his motives and philosophy of life, and finally, unmasking.
  • The Office has blogs for Dwight, Meredith, and Creed. Actor Brian Baumgartner wrote a blog as his character Kevin.
  • Gus and Lassiter of Psych both have blogs on the show's official site. Lassiter's blog is actually written by Tim Ormundson, the actor who plays him.
    • Lassiter also has a Twitter.
  • Several characters from Sherlock have blogs, chief among them being John Watson's.
    • Amusingly, John's blog mentions that people have faked Twitter accounts for himself and Sherlock (referring to the Real Life fan accounts), and his sister is horrified. "Then who the hell have I been talking to on there?"
  • One of the earliest character blogs was Stargate SG-1, which had a website in the early seasons which posted "mission reports" after each new episode, although it didn't mention whether any of the on-screen characters wrote them.
  • Earth: Final Conflict also had these, primarily Augur's site.
  • True Blood: Jessica Hamby has her own video blog from season 3 onwards, giving partial glimpses into her new life or just providing an extra laugh.
  • Character blogs and characters played by Deborah Ann Woll go hand-in-hand. In the months leading up to the release of The Defenders (2017), Marvel set up a page dressed as a website for the New York Bulletin, the newspaper that Matt's girlfriend Karen Page (Woll) works for as of the closure of Nelson & Murdock at the end of Daredevil (2015) season 2. The page includes the many Bulletin front page covers that have appeared throughout the four Netflix shows, as well as a few extra covers that summarize the statuses of Matt Murdock, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Danny Rand coming in to The Defenders, along with additional covers teasing plot elements.
    • In the marketing leading up to the release of The Punisher (2017), the fake New York Bulletin site added a Staff section where users could use Karen Page's login information (Karen_P / M@att&F0ggy) to access her research into Frank Castle.
  • Many characters from The West Wing have Twitter accounts detailing their lives today. Some of the actors from the show tweet with the characters and 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.
  • Parks and Recreation has a for the city, rather than a blog.
  • The Flash (2014) has a Tumblr blog for Cisco, The Chronicles of Cisco, which details his work as caretaker for the imprisoned metahumans.
  • House of Cards (US) has seen people develop Facebook pages for Frank Underwood, and even for his election campaign.
  • Dog with a Blog gives title billing to Stan the dog's character blog, but it doesn't actually have great importance for the show.
  • Several characters of Allí abajo were given their own Twitter feeds shortly before the series started. To name just three: @VascoEnSevilla (Iñaki), @AupaCarmen (Carmen) and @maritxuteoye (Maritxu).
  • Despite being set in the 19th century, the official Twitter handle of series Víctor Ros is written as if it was run by the titular character himself.
  • Iron Fist (2017): As part of the marketing for The Defenders (2017), there is a LinkedIn profile for Ward Meachum.
  • Agent Olympia from Odd Squad has a vlog on YouTube, titled OddTube. Some fans say it was mostly made to cover the hiatus from November 2016 into March 2017, but this could just be coincidental. Other characters, like Oona, Otis and Ms. O, have also made appearances on the show. (Both Otis and Oona have filled in for Olympia once.) Find it here.
    • Agent Orla eventually took over hosting duties from Olympia due to Anna Cathcart's departure from the show.
  • Aunty Jack from The Aunty Jack Show has a Twitter account.


  • It Makes A Sound is the fictional amateur radio show of music superfan Deirdre Gardner. Her official website is as ambitious in promise and endearingly 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.

    Pro Wrestling 
  • CHIKARA has an example of the concept done in wrestling, as periodically on their web site new blog posts from members of their roster writing in character are uploaded.
  • It could be argued that most pro wrestlers in the indy scene with MySpaces would be doing this as well, most notably Vin Gerard, Chris Hero and all the 'guest columnists' on

  • A lot of role-playing profiles on MySpace doubled as a character blog. Whether or not they would interact with non-roleplayers depended on the person behind the profile. Almost all of them were fan-made, though. The number of these decreased dramatically once people abandoned the site en masse for Facebook but there are still a few around (mainly because Facebook deletes these kinds of pages regularly).
  • We Are Our Adventuring Avatars: Coco writes about his experiences with the Kerberos Security mercenaries, and transcriptions can be found here.
  • DC Nation keeps mosat of its action on the main comm, but some of the players use the character journals to play out side stories or make in-character comments on the plot lines.
  • Survival of the Fittest has an example which falls mostly into the second variety, as excerpts from the blog of Quincy Archer, Sound and Fury, have been inserted into a number of posts. A few characters from the IU chatroom (where in-universe "fans" of the show talk to each other about the events in the game) currently have their own Twitters as of the start of v4. As you might expect, they contain commentary on the events of the current version. There's also Survival of the Snarkiest, which is similar to the above. Basically it's an in-universe blog for Mini site's SOTF-TV (basically "normal" Survival of the Fittest as a Reality TV show) similar to Television Without Pity, in which "fans" of the show submit posts about current events in the game.

  • The Drowsy Chaperone did this with the Man In Chair during the Broadway run, and some local productions have vlogs or even Facebook pages for him.

  • BIONICLE has done two online serials this way with a blog written by Gali in 2007 and a Takanuva Blog in 2008. Takanuva's blog though generally retells the climax of the 2008 arc from his perspective.

    Video Games 
  • General Alfonso Knoxx, the Big Bad of the Borderlands DLC Armory of General Knoxx, has his own Twitter Account.
  • Cooking Diary: Vivian has her own blog on instagram where she posts photos of all her travels and adventures.
  • DanceDanceRevolution Hottest Party's Rena writes blog updates for the DDR Wii games. When Furu Furu Party (Japan's HP2) was coming out, she even did interviews with the main staff of FFP!
  • Bannable Offenses is a blog where a Game Master for Final Fantasy XI, [GM]Dave, lists his many, many, many cases of cruel and unusual punishment against stupid and/or ignorant players and gilsellers, along with some snippets of his everyday life. A Magnificent Bastard if there ever was one.
    • The same person also did another character blog from the perspective of an enemy from the game, Goblin Smithy. This one actually came first, but got less attention and never made it back from the author's first hiatus.
  • The official blog for the Updated Re-release of La-Mulana has several archeology lectures done by Lemeza himself.
  • The little red sisters of The Path posted their own blogs up to the time of release, with entries that became Harsher in Hindsight after playing.
  • During the development of Psychonauts, Tim Schafer created profiles for each of the game's child characters in a small online friending network to better develop each character's personality.
  • Sam Fisher, the hero of Splinter Cell, once had one. Just like the "interviews" with him in the games' special features, it claimed that the games were merely based on his real life adventures. Strangely, he explicitly named the top-secret organization he's supposedly a part of.
  • There is a rather lengthy series of fan-made character blogs for the cast of Suikoden IV and Suikoden Tactics, which tell the story of both games, although Tactics is incomplete. The archives can be found here.
  • Eri Mizutani, from the DS game THE iDOLM@STER Dearly Stars, has her own blog, named Fountain of Ellie. This is sort of Older Than They Think. The arcade version of The Idolmaster had an online service where, if you put in your e-mail or cellphone numbers (not sure of which), the Idol you're currently coaching will send you text messages from time to time.
  • With the advent of Twitter, character microblogs of The Idolmaster characters are blooming (more so after The Anime of the Game airs). The genuine, Bandai Namco-operated ones are of course Japanese-only, while there are also a few English role-played character blogs with a varying degree of seriousness. Here's a few examples, for Haruka, Chihaya, Yayoi, Yukiho, and Makoto.
  • For Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan and a few other series, a large collection of fan-made character blogs can be found on Formspring. Here's the trope page.
  • A series of Twitter posts were written by Shantae summarizing the plot of the first game, to promote the sequel.
  • There is an official Twitter page for Doug Rattman of Portal. There are various handfuls of both ask and roleplay blogs on Tumblr for practically all characters from both Portal games. Including, and not limited to, all the personality cores, GLaDOS, Chell, Rattmann, Cave Johnson, turrets, the emancipation grill, a lemon, the radio... actually, if it's appeared in Portal, there's probably been a blog made for it.
  • Norman Jayden from Heavy Rain has several, including a popular Formspring and Twitter account run by the YouTuber NahmanJayden (now inactive). He also has Facebook and Tumblr pages owned by different people.
    • Ethan Mars, Scott Shelby, Madison Paige, Carter Blake, and even Shaun/Jason Mars also have some blogs floating around on the internet, although many of them are inactive or infrequently updated.
  • During the buildup to the release of Mass Effect 3, Emily Wong had a Twitter feed (technically, she took over the preexisting Alliance News Network account). It can be seen chronologically here. For twelve hours, she livetweeted the Reaper invasion of Earth until she died, ramming her skyvan into a Reaper.
  • Yukabacera of Iji kept secret news posts on Daniel Remar's official website to provide some backstory to the game and to characterize himself more. They're right here.
  • Hatoful Boyfriend character Oko San has a Tumblr. Unsurprisingly, it's full of pudding.
  • The Black(er) Baron (stop starin') of Anarchy Reigns, and by extension MadWorld, has a twitter here for promoting the former.
  • In StarCraft II, scientists and support staff have a blog and Twitter accounts as part of an advertising campaign for the Heart of the Swarm expansion.
  • Ace Combat: Assault Horizon had a development blog by series mainstay Kei Nagase, who is a Composite Character of the different roles she played throughout the games. In it a anime-esque version of the character describes news and progress of the game, and she can be be downloaded as one of the F-5 aircraft designs.
  • Emperor Zinyak, the Alien Emperor of Saints Row IV has a Twitter account for promoting the aforementioned game.
  • There's a Japanese official blog supposedly 'written' by the different characters in WarioWare: Smooth Moves. Sort of like a group blog for Wario characters.
  • The elemental deities of Flight Rising all have their own clan accounts, and they exist as dragons within those accounts. They also occasionally post on the forums, even responding to users. There's a thread dedicated to compiling all of the forum posts and profile comments by the gods.
  • A Very Long Rope to the Top of the Sky: The Ask Mint page.
  • Theo of Celeste mentions having an InstaPix account, @theounderstars. People who bothered to look up that username on Instagram were greeted with Theo's actual official Instagram account.

    Web Animation 

  • Achewood takes this to extremes, with frequently updated blogs for Ray, Roast Beef, Pat, Teodor, Philippe, Cornelius, Lyle, Molly, Nice Pete, Little Nephew, Emeril, and finally cartoonist Chris Onstad himself (whose house is a key setting for the comic, and who has turned up sparingly throughout)
    • Also, the Chris Onstad who appears in the comic and writes the blog isn't the "real" Chris Onstad; that is, he's a fictionalized version of himself and his blog is not the same it would be if it were the "real" Onstad. He very rarely breaks character from the fictional Onstad anywhere.
  • Erfworld uses two variations of the Character Blog. The creators have set up a site with an archive of Parson's "real world" webcomic and comments. After he is summoned into Erfworld, Parson records his thoughts in a series of Klogs (booK logs) that are occasionally interspersed with regular Erfworld pages.
  • A borderline example: the most prominent characters in Far Out There have their own personal Pandora Radio stations.
  • Friendly Hostility had blogs supposedly kept by Fox, Collin and Bootsie. The real writers never revealed their identities. All but defunct now, the blogs are still a fun read, and worth looking into for their alternate/supplemental takes on the story.
  • Othar Tryggvassen, GENTLEMAN ADVENTURER!! of Girl Genius, and a Well-Intentioned Extremist, has his own Twitter.
  • The cast of Hanna Is Not a Boy's Name has fan-run Twitter blogs, though they're admittedly fake and not terribly true to character (rather, most tend to be exaggerated) (the rest of the characters can be found through each character's 'following' page).
  • The author of the Insecticomics kept a livejournal for Safeguard for a while. However, it was completely in Mini-Con beeps and thus completely incomprehensible.
  • It should be no surprise that Lindesfarne of Kevin & Kell would keep a blog. "The Virtual Quill" updates weekly with her own commentary on recent events in the comic. Recently, she's begun to respond to her readers' comments as well. Even more recently, former regular Catherine Aura has been posting to Twitter to spy on strip author Bill Holbrook because of his vast knowledge of the Domain universe. To do so, she's even taken the measure of making herself and her son human. Unlike Lindesfarne's blog, however, the readers are encouraged not to let her in on the "secret".
  • The in-universe creator of The Life of Nob T. Mouse, Hubert Schlongson, occasionally pops up on the website to provide increasingly surreal anecdotes about his time visiting Nob Mouse and friends.
  • These show up in multiple ways for Questionable Content.
    • Marten had a music blog for a while, but it's long been defunct.
    • Hannelore had her own Formspring but like Marten's blog it hasn't been used in a long while.
    • The main characters have Twitter pages, all communicating with each other.
      • Word of warning: If you decide to go read the twitters, keep a jug of Brain Bleach nearby if you go anywhere near Pintsize's or Yelling Bird's.
  • Romantically Apocalyptic has "Ask (Character)" tumblrs for each main character. Though run by fans, the people in charge are kept up to date on plot plans and character bios by the author so that they can be as accurate as possible, and they are effectively official. There are also some less-official ones for side-characters such as Photoshop and Mister Kittyhawk that do not receive the plot-backing.
  • Shelley Winters, the nominal main character of Scary Go Round had her own Twitter, described by her creator as "the greatest betrayal of my professional career". He later abandoned it, however.
  • Many characters from Unwinder's Tall Comics have their own Internet presence. For example a Journal Comic made by Felicity Walsh is here. Another character, Sonty Mick has a webcomic criticism blog. Unwinder himself has a blog chronicling his attempts to chat with Vin Diesel via Omegle. Then there are Shadow and Chug from Powerup Comics...
  • Death, from the webcomic The Kenny Chronicles, on Twitter.
  • Wolf, from the webcomic Here Wolf posts on the comic's Twitter and Facebook pages.
  • Nick Zerhakker, the cyborg helicopter from Skin Horse, has a LiveJournal where he gets to complain about the field team (and everything else) without his in-universe profanity-blocking software interfering.. It was temporarily comandeered by Unity for her New Orleans Mission Log (ie, a sidestory about what she was doing while Tip and Sweetheart were in Cleveland).
  • Homestuck: Dave Strider, in addition to his webcomic, has a blog.
  • Commander Kitty has twitter accounts for both the Commander himself and deuteragonist Nin Wah.
  • The entire cast of morphE have Ask Blogs on their Tumblr account most notably Tyler Dawn's blog is voice acted and (slightly) animated and hosted on YouTube.
  • Sandra North from Sandra and Woo has a YouTube channel.
  • Las Lindas has Ask the High Prime (sometimes NSFW), which primarily features High Prime Lady Ambar but occasionally other characters.
  • Uber Quest has Ask Uber-Cast (often NSFW).

    Web Original 

    Web Videos 
  • The Autobiography of Jane Eyre (Setting Update of Jane Eyre) is Jane's video vlog. Jane is a Canadian girl, without family or close friends, and she uses her vlog as an attempt to know herself better, and later as a safety net because she works in a strange isolated house and she wants to gather evidence of possible neglect or abuse, and she asks her viewers for insight or help. Most characters have Twitter accounts with very impressive and rather realistic feed. For instance, Miss Ingram kept tweeting long before she appeared on the show about fashion, shopping in New York or travelling to Europe. Here is a list of characters with links to their social media pages.
  • Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, of course... though it's only seen in the actual work.
  • Echo Chamber:
  • KateModern is told entirely through video blogs.
  • The Lizzie Bennet Diaries: The characters are quite convincingly established across the internet, overall. The whole series is Elizabeth Bennet's vlog. Most of the characters have Twitter feeds, Tumblrs and Facebook accounts. Wickham's money-making scheme is an actual, accessible website.
  • lonelygirl15 is told in video blog.
  • The Nostalgia Chick's facebook will sometimes serve as this, as Lindsay has her own and it demonstrates her obsession with Todd in the Shadows. She even referred to herself as Mystique and Todd as Nightcrawler before realizing how bad that sounded.
  • Tamara from The Nostalgia Critic set up both a facebook and a vlog series for Hyper Fangirl so she could flesh out the character (and how damaged she was) herself.
  • Agamemnon Tiberius Vacuum semi-regularly posts propaganda transmissions on YouTube.
  • In Carmilla the Series, both Laura and Carmilla have canon blogs on tumblr.
  • The characters in Dorm Life get webcams for making their own vlogs. Some of their videos are used to complement the Mockumentary footage and some are exclusively on the show website.
  • Every episode of The Guild starts with a short vlog from Codex. It is unclear whether she actually posts these vlogs, or if they're for her own edification. Vork has a twitter.
  • Filthy Frank turns this up a notch. Not only does the main character have a youtube channel as the "base" blog, he has a side channel for quick gags, a Facebook, AND a twitter for questions for his Fourth-Wall Mail Slot.
  • ML Lanzillotta vlogs as a number of bizarre characters, including Lucia the Time Traveling Roman and Hamlet the Prince of Denmark himself.
  • Sanrio:

    Western Animation 
  • Various Transformers have Twitter accounts, including Shattered Glass Ravage and bunch of characters from Animated. It's uncertain if any (and if so which) are "officially" run, or just random fans.
    • None of them are official in terms of canon, but Animated Sentinel Prime's Twitter is run by Jim Sorenson, compiler/writer of several official knowledge guides, and Ravage's Twitter is run by David Willis, the guy who created the character.
      • In addition, Derrick J. Wyatt has officially sanctioned the blogs of Shattered Glass Sari and that fat, pompous old loon, Lord High Governor Straxus.
    • The Facebook page Ask Vector Prime existed mainly to have Vector Prime answer questions about the various Transformers works and would occasionally be retooled into a different edition where another Transformers character would answer questions in Vector Prime's stead. The most popular edition was Renegade Rhetoric, which was run by Cy-Kill from Challenge of the GoBots, eventually continued as its own Facebook page and had the Renegade leader use his posts to describe the events from a fictional second season of Challenge of the GoBots.
  • The Simpsons: Homer Simpson only has one Twitter account. The other one is fake.
  • Family Guy: Peter Griffin has an official Instagram account.
  • There are well over fifty twitter accounts associated with My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic (including separate ones for Nightmare Moon and Princess Luna). At this point, it's unclear how many, if any at all, are canon.
    • The official My Little Pony Facebook page has recently had posts by Twilight Sparkle in character.
    • A lot of Tumblr blogs are ask blogs where you ask anyone from alternate versions of the Mane Six to random background ponies to fanfic or OC characters questions, although those are definitely fan-maintained and have their own page now.
  • Hilda has both a Twitter and Instagram account that keeps track of her daily adventures in Trolberg.

    • In several episodes (starting with "Cat Fingers"), Ronaldo mentions that he has a blog called "Keep Beach City Weird". He has even been shown taking pictures and video and posting them to his blog. Indeed, it's a real tumblr blog which was made several months before the series premiered. For a while during the show's run, when new episodes came out, Ronaldo would often post things which were somehow related to the episode (either mentioning actual on-screen occurrences, or discussing other things which are coincidentally similar), sometimes even updating in real time as the episode aired. Now that's dedication.
    • Peridot has a Twitter account, which started updating throughout the West Coast premier of "Too Short to Ride" as she spent the episode posting on the in-show equivalent of the website. Like "Keep Beach City Weird," posts would come out shortly after episode premiers, generally related to the episode's events.
  • Mr. Gus from Uncle Grandpa has an official one of these but most of the content of his blog is in regards to his Gemsona (a Steven Universe Gem OC) Mr. Gusite and participating in a fandom event called "Gemsona Week". This is all leading up to the crossover episode wherein Mr. Gus is seen working on a picture of Mr. Gusite which is then defaced by Pizza Steve. The blog's final post is a piece of Mr. Gusite fanart drawn by the creator of Steven Universe, Rebecca Sugar herself! Mr. Gus figured Uncle Grandpa called in a favor to cheer him up.
