We are proud to make this service available to all current UT Arlington faculty and staff.
What is a blog?
The term “blog” is short for “weblog”. As blogger.com has so eloquently put,
“A blog is a personal diary. A daily pulpit. A collaborative space. A political soapbox. A breaking-news outlet. A collection of links. Your own private thoughts. Memos to the world. Your blog is whatever you want it to be. There are millions of them, in all shapes and sizes.”blogger.com
More than just a Blog
You are not limited to posting in the traditional “Blog” format. Most sites take the form of traditional web sites relegating blog posts to a news page.
What is the Maverick Blogs Service?
UT Arlington is providing all faculty and staff the ability to create their own site. We have chosen WordPress as the software for this service, software that many of you may already be familiar with.
What can I put in my Blog
You may post text, pictures or almost anything you can think of. Please keep in mind that the content of your Blog must be in line with the University of Texas at Arlington Information Resources Acceptable Use Policy.
