About blogs

NOTE: This pilot has now ended and Wordpress MU is being transitioned to the Central Web Unit for University wide rollout. Therefore please direct all support / account enquires to the UNSW IT Service Centre.

"A blog (a contraction of the term "Web log") is a Web site, usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary,
descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order.
"Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, Web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs."
