edublogs… still going up & can you help spread the word?

In General on 2/8/2005 at 11:43 am

61 blogs and counting… now, if you wanted to do the world a great big favour you could help spread the word!


Basically It’d be great if people could:

-Share with any education / academia related listservs or email groups they belong to (I don’t belong to any… so that’s really up to you!)

-Spread around your campus, school, organisation or friends

-Take the plunge yourself and set up an edublog today!

Please feel free to introduce it entirely how you would see fit… or use the ‘press release’ (:o) below:


The launch of is an totally unique project aimed at teachers, researchers, writers and educators the world over.

Basically you get to set up a free WordPress blog, 10MB of upload space (extending to much much more down the line), an enormous stack of beautiful themes and to be part of a unique community.

You could use a blog to record and annotate important resources and ideas, to propose and discuss anything under the sun, to progressively develop your thesis, to publicise and discuss your publications with the world or just to develop your digital identity.

Either way, is a no-strings-attached, open source, ongoing and freely available service for you and you’re invited to take part!

If you’ve got any questions, please feel free to contact James Farmer at james[at]edublogs(dot)org


  1. James if you have an OPML of the sites I will add them to my overall HR/Learnng OPML file.

  2. Now that is a worthwhile question… let me get onto the dev and see if we have that.

  3. Did you build the OPML file, cause “if you build it they will come” :-) oh and I will host it.

  4. Heh… I asked but was greated with a wall of silence… looks like this might be one I have to figure out for myself… here goes…

  5. Well you know where to come if you need some really really basic php help ;-)

  6. Bloody hell, have you tried the opml editor… have fallen at the first hurdle (i.e. knowing what the heck I’m doing)
