So, this fabulous place that hosts this humble blog has just celebrated its second birthday and James has upped the whole front page and reintroduced the concept of the featured blog. For reasons known only to him, TGZ is the lucky blog and Mike Seyfang alerted me via twitter to his screengrab.
Now, as a long time edublogs user, I remember being a featured blog once before so I ploughed through the wayback machine to see if I could find the evidence. I found that Doug Johnson initially hosted the Blue Skunk Blog on edublogs. And then from November, 2005, this:
I think I'm the only survivor from that bunch - Jeremy at Smelly Knowledge quit blogging and the Server Room shut up shop but I'm still here! And still encouraging others to stay put too, I might add.
So, James, well done mate! Edublogs is one of the best gifts to education Web 2.0 could ever muster.
Graham, just read this post and will head on over to edublogs myself to check it out! Am just now beginning to plan out a strategy for using blogs in my classroom, and was trying to decide which one to go with. Of course, the issue of site filtering may come into play – forcing a decision in one way or another, but hopefully they’ve not blocked access to the EB site. Congratulations! 🙂
You are a survivor!
Congrats on being featured on the edublogs site….. you are being rewarded for your efforts, ideas, thoughts, opinions and longevity lol!
I enjoy reading… and I don’t think I have to tell you to keep it up 🙂
PS – still haven’t found a twitter addiction test for you!
