Blog is a communication tool that plays a key role in a web application. Use of blogs has resulted in a paradigm shift in the way a web application interacts with the customer. During the development of web application, there is a need to elicit and specify the requirements for the blogging functionality. In this study, we present a requirements checklist for the blog, from the perspective of integrating the blog in a web application. We follow the use case based approach for identifying the software requirement for the blog. The requirement checklist helps both the web application and the developer during the requirement elicitation of the blog’s software. The checklist is also useful during the testing phase for the validation and verification of the blog functionality.
