About this BlogFrom the brief: "A key component of this project it the creation and subsequent development of a group blog. You should use this to record and document how you work, and to discuss ideas as a group. Your group blog should show the chronology of the development of your ideas, and provide a narrative of your project. It will also demonstrate your individual contribution to the group, and the project in general. The module therefore requires you to work effectively in groups of varying sizes, whilst also evidencing your own contributions for individual submission and assessment".
