How does it work?

Your own WordPress blog which ranks highly in search.

The blogging service provides users the ability to record their thoughts, opinions or news on a publicly viewable web space without the need for any technical knowledge.

Blogs are commonly used to share information, useful links, media, examples or experiences in relation to targeted subjects (or given a personal blog whatever the user wishes) to interested persons or the world in general.

The benefits of hosting your blog internally include higher search rankings from the domain, a fully-managed WordPress platform and a robust IT infrastructure.

If you require a blog for your academic unit or service, please use the Team Blog Request Form and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
