ITS’ web publishing services are provided for Yale academic, instructional and professional purposes.
Use of these services is encouraged for Yale academic and professional purposes; personal web publishing should be conducted on any of a widely available set of commercial personal blog or web spaces.

1. All ITS blogs and web pages are provided for academic, instructional and professional purposes at Yale.
2. blogs.yale.edu is not spidered by search engines such as Google, which means that a search in the major search engines will not find your blog. The site search engine at blogs.yale.edu provides local search.
3. By default, the URL of your blog will include your NetID. When you choose your blog title, if you do not want it to include your NetID, you do not have to. If you do not want people to contact you directly, it's probably best not to publish your name, NetID or email address.
4. The comments feature: You can decide whether or not to allow people to post comments on your blog by enabling this feature in the account options after you have set up your blog. By default, only people with Yale NetIDs are allowed to post comments. When you comment on some one's blog, your NetID, but not your name, will appear. Comment responsibly.
Use of these services is encouraged for Yale academic and professional purposes; personal web publishing should be conducted on any of a widely available set of commercial personal blog or web spaces e.g., Blogger.com, Typepad.com, Wordpress.com or many others.
If you have any questions regarding how this application works, please consult the online documentation.
