A blog (weblog) is a website that is just like a diary. Mr Williams said his NICCYblog is one of the many ways he is keeping children and young people up-to-date on his work.

“In my experience children and young people are much more media literate and I know many have their own blogs,” he said.
“A lot of children and young people are visiting the new NICCY website, and I wanted a way that I could keep them and others, up-to-date on what I am doing and who I am meeting.
“The blog lets me record right away some of the meetings I attend and some of the children and young people I meet in a way that a traditional newsletter or even a website could not.”
The NICCYblog also allows visitors to place comments about the entries on the blog.
“This means people can tell me exactly what they think on what I say and help us to hear their views in a very direct way,” said the commissioner.
