‘edublogs.org’ or ‘edublogs’?

When I started out with edublogs.org I figured that the best thing to call it was exactly that, edublogs.org – basically because it’s a pretty easily memorable url and it seemed a bit presumptuous to call it ‘edublogs’ seeing as there are plenty of edublogs out there (and blogs called edublogs!) and I didn’t want it to appear like I was trying to take any ownership of the more general space – because I wasn’t and I’m not.

However, as the site continues to grow at an alarmingly rapid pace (over 8,000 blogs now there!!!) I’m wondering whether ‘edublogs.org’ sounds a bit clunky (especially in considering a logo design) and if just calling it ‘edublogs’ might make things a lot more straightforward in terms of talking about it and branding it.

So whaddya reckon? Is it worth changing? Is it too presumptuous to call it ‘edublogs’?

  1. Yeh, that’s probably worth considering too! Wonder how much the owner of that would provide it for…

  2. I’m a newbie over here, James. I agree with Stephen because I’m practical, however I like the shorter version for the same reasons you suggest.
