A blog is an online diary with comments and opinions on any subject and can include links to other websites. New blog pages are automatically stamped with the date and time of their creation, which reinforces the perception of blogs as journals.

The Bristol Blogs Network is a blogging platform hosted on behalf of the University of Bristol by CampusPress, an education-specific WordPress provider. Bristol Blogs are available to staff and postgraduate research students across the University. For more information about Bristol Blogs and how to sign up for one, visit the Bristol Blogs help site.
