Reeta Chakrabarti, the BBC's UK affairs' correspondent, speaks to people who have found a voice outside the mainstream media, through the medium of blogging.
Today Reeta meets Iram Ramzan, whose blog reflects her life, as what she calls a 'progressive Muslim woman'. She started blogging as a journalism student because it was expected of her, but some of her opinions have begun to attract a wider audience: she's been interviewed by the Sun and quoted by mainstream journalists. However Iram has also been the subject of twitter-abuse. Reeta asks her if she's taking a risk by blogging so openly - anonymity was something she never considered.
