The Edublogger has been set up by Edublogs — “the largest education community on the Internet” where you can sign up for a free WordPress-powered blog — and is dedicated to helping educational bloggers with using emerging technologies in education, share their own experiences and promote the blogging medium.

About the Editor
My name is Sue Waters and I’m well known for my Mobile Technology in TAFE blog. As a blogger I’m about — practical application of technologies in education, and most importantly HELPING OTHERS learn how to use these technologies. The Edublogger will be an extension of what I already do, but at a central place within Edublogs.
Bit of an understatement — but I am extremely excited to be involved with The Edublogger because it increases my potential to interact and connect with a larger community, hopefully helping even more people.
The Edublogger is not about me, but the educational blogging community. It is about us working together, helping each other, sharing our experiences and learning together. My role is to help bring the community together. So please help us to get this journey underway by assisting us with the following:
- What interests you? – Are you interested in …. ‘How-to” tips? Blogging tips? Getting others educators involved in using technology? Tips on using Edublogs? Or are there other topics that interest you?
- Blog Tweaking – New blogs always needs some tweaking! Are there design features, widgets or things you’d like to see?
- Subscribing to The Edublogger – Subscribe in a reader
Please share your thoughts, and encouragement, in the comments of this post.

Hi. This is a great site! Congratulations on making a great site!
thank dear it is new version of Edublogs
I would like to find out if anyone is copying my work and came upon this website that can find out about copying. http://www.fairshare.cc/fairshare/verifyFeed.
However, I need to have a RSS feed for my edublog. Is there an easy way to get a RSS feed for the whole edublog?
Hi Dot, if you just need for your blog it is http://handsacrosstheoceans.edublogs.org/feed . Please tell me how you go as it sounds interesting.
@Terry No problem at all. Just glad my information is helpful.
Thanks, Sue, for all you to to educate us on how to better construct and use our blogs with Edublog’s hosting service. Terry
@Gail Desler thanks for helping me out and answering Terry Carter’s question. Unfortunately for the last week I’ve had an issue with comment notifications so wasn’t notified of this comment. Fortunately I’ve fixed the problem and am now being notified.
Apologies Terry for not seeing your comment and thanks for your support.
Thanks for your explanation, Gail. I will pass this info along to our students; sorry to hear that Edublogs has had to do this, however. I’ll do my part by joining and maybe others will as well so we can get these removed from student blogs.
Thank you for taking the time to write and provide me with an explanation. Terry Carter
@Terry Carter – Hi Terry, I also was surprised last week when I saw the pop-up ads for the first time. I hope my blog post will help to answer your question: Hey, what’s with the pop-up ads?.
Perhaps you can help since I don’t know how to reach James Farmer. Recently, pop-up ads have started appearing on my students (and my) edublogs … it’s very distracting and seems inappropriate for an educational blog site. What’s up with this?
@Christine Oops sorry for slow response to question. Here you go. Here is my post that explains what are pingbacks and how to insert a link into a blog post.
If you look down the post under “How To Link To Other Bloggers’ Posts” it includes pictures to show you how. Good luck and hope it helps.
@Gail Thanks for helping out by answering @1992Saint’s question. Been very busy this week with the Student blogging competition so really appreciated the assistance.
@1992saint Have all your questions been answered?
