Abstract: Since the evolution of web 2.0 technologies, the use of weblogs has grown vastly. Weblog is a platform for discussion and awareness about various subjects. It has also promoted use of blogs in other IT sectors like educational blogs, fashion blogs, IT technology blogs, food recipe blogs, microblogs and other personalized blogs. The ratings of users on each post in a blog are significant. Researchers have suggested that using blogs in education are also vital as it instills awareness in the students and develops an interaction amongst them. Blogs are a subset of group-work as it diffuses awareness about different fields and technologies across the interested demographic. As students feel difficulty to go through all the previous projects and also find it difficult to select a particular domain for their final year projects. This research is the solution of above defined problem. In this research work, first a weblog for maintaining the final year B.E projects of MUET students is developed. This work embodies the feature of the post’s ranking at specific time with the help of a ranking algorithm that is applied on posts by MUET students. This algorithm is termed as WCA (Word CountAlgorithm) and uses the comments of users as its source. Developed ranking algorithm provide users particular information in several particular dimensions. The developed searching filters assists the weblog to announce a particular post as highest comments containing posts, 1 week older posts, 1 hour older posts, and all the older posts.Automated testing and user testing also proves the usefulness of the developed MUET blog.
