A blog (an abbreviation of weblog) is a personal website, organised like a diary or journal, which shows the author’s most recent additions first. It enables the author to write regular entries expressing their view of events. Depending on the permission levels set for blogED, the readers (audience) of the blog are able to create a ‘post’ to a blog or ‘comment’ on a post.
