There's no such data type as "BLOG".

@OP: It depends, normally I would suggest LONGTEXT for forum posts, but TEXT type is treated as character set so they have a character set.

That's all fine if you plan on using one language throughout the posts, but if you plan on using Eastern languages I'd suggest BLOB, where data is treated as byte-strings.

maybe he mixed blog with blob => binary large object which mysql support. On oracle you can also have clob which is character large object which on mysql is called text (tinytext,text, mediumtext or longtext)

I didn't know that, but I'll keep in mind when I work on an Oracle database(unlikely, since I dislike Oracle very much these days).

Thank you
