Abstract: Chat-bot is a computer code that interacts with humans by itself without taking any human assistance. The chat-bot uses natural language processing (NLP) for understanding a human request or query. Blog is an information network where people (group) post information in their area of expertise and people with similar interests read and learn from them. The problem with traditional blog websites is that the user can only get the data which is linked to the home page and also the user have to manually go to every page to get the data. The proposed research work aims in designing and building a chat-bot which, with which the administrators and any common man can interact in English and ask for questions like 'show all the posts by abc', which hence provides a natural language (NL) interface between user's language (English) and the blog's (an information network) database.
