  3. A blog (a portmanteau of the term web log)[1] is a discussion or informational site published on the World Wide Web and consisting of discrete entries ("posts") typically displayed in reverse chronological order. Until 2009 blogs were usually the work of a single individual, occasionally of a small group, and often covered a single subject. More recently "multi-author blogs" (MABs) have developed, with posts written by large numbers of authors and professionally edited. Blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

Write in good English – including grammar and punctuation. Be polite - don’t post anything that could hurt anyone’s feelings. Always show respect  – be positive if you are going to make a comment. Always make a comment on someone else’s blog before doing your own post!
