Blogs

A blog is basically a journal that is available on the web. The activity of updating a blog is blogging and someone who keeps a blog is a blogger.  The specific type of blog we host for you uses WordPress software.

Blogs are typically updated daily using software that allows people with little or no technical background to update and maintain the blog. Postings on a blog are almost always arranged in chronological order with the most recent additions featured most prominently.

On the Internet, a blog (short for weblog) is a personal journal that is frequently updated and intended for general public consumption. Blogs generally represent the personality of the author or reflect the purpose of the Web site that hosts the blog. Topics sometimes include brief philosophical musings, commentary on Internet and other social issues, and links to other sites the author favors. The essential characteristics of the blog are its journal form, typically a new entry each day, and its informal style. The author of a blog is often referred to as a blogger. Many blogs syndicate their content to subscribers using RSS, a popular content distribution tool.

The ability to blog is also available within Moodle. This would be a separate and unique blog from one that you create using this tool. Or, you can link a blog created through this tool request to your Moodle.
