Finding Information and Searching for Articles

What is a Blog?

A Blog is a discussion or information site published on the Web consisting of discrete entries (“posts”) typically displayed in reverse chronological order so the most recent post appears first.  This website runs on a blog. Ours is a “multi-author blog” where posts can be written by multiple authors and edited or managed by multiple admins as well. It is an ideal system for a club or an association such as ours to use for sharing information with its membership.
