Am starting to develop a bit an obsessive habit of checking how many new edublog there are… need to calm down!
76 at the moment… so still going about 1 per hour, c’mon, spread the word and let’s try to double that!
-Installed subscribe-to-comments plugin – works beautifully… happy dance!
-A ton of anti-spam plugins are installed by default too so no worries there :o)
-As soon as I can figure out how to nicely include it I’m going to whack an ‘edublogs news’ blog up there for this kind of stuff
(here’s that ‘press release’ again for you to share with the listservs you are on, pretty please!)
http://edublogs.org – Launched!
http://edublogs.org 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 (by far the best blogging platform out there!), 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, http://edublogs.org 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
