Introduction

A Blog can be used to write a diary or make a stream of notes on web pages in a series of chapters or sections, sometimes with the ability for others to make comments. Blogs use online editors, which often look a little bit like word processor applications.  These allow users to make web pages without having any knowledge of how to develop web content. The user can make regular entries, which are dated and displayed in reverse chronological order to provide a commentary on a particular topic. The content in blogs can be made very accessible to all users, although there may be some additional elements in the web page that are harder to use such as built in calendars.
