The blogging service provides users the ability to record their thoughts, opinions or news on a publically viewable web space without the need for any technical knowledge.
Blogs are commonly used to share information, useful links, media, examples or experiences in relation to targeted subjects (or given a personal blog whatever the user wishes) to interested persons or the world in general.
Any member (or group of members) of the University can register for, view, comment on and post to their blog.
Blogs are readable by anyone in the world.
