Japanese product blogs

This morning, I was looking surfing the blogosphere, looking at Japanese blogs (e.g., Dragon Egg, Vitamin X, etc.). I was surprised to see the number of blogs that discuss products. One blog even had a link category called "product blogs." Some of the postings also discussed cell-phones seen on the subway and so on. Admittedly, some of the products were funny (e.g., Aloe-flavored ice-cream), but entire blogs dedicated to products! Is this sort of thing common in English-language blogs as well or is this just a peculiarity of Japanese blogs?
