What's a Blog?
A blog (or weblog) is a Web site or page in which items are posted and displayed in reverse chronological order. A weblog is a journal (or newsletter) that is frequently updated and intended for general public consumption. Blogs generally represent the personality of the author or the Web site.
Blogs often focus on a particular subject, such as food, sports, or local news. Some blogs function as online diaries. A typical blog may combine text, images, and links to other blogs, Web pages, and other media related to its topic.
At Fort Donelson, we want to keep you connected with what is happening in the park. Our Bloggers are staff members with an interest in communicating to you, what is happening in their field of expertise.
Due to some limitations within our content management system, we are only able to post entries and cannot accept responses at this time.
