Needs Support

James Farmer has been offering one of the few educational blogging services that is free, non-commercial and just about perfect for those looking for an alternative to Blogger. is a non-profit adventure into providing free blogs and hosting for teachers, students, researchers, librarians, writers and other education professionals.

I know that there is a demand for this service because many people pass through here while searching for "free educational blogs" or similar search terms. What James needs to keep edublogs going is some financial support.

But I’m fundamentally against putting any advertising on blogs. Down the line I’d like to leave that option up to you (i.e. advertise if you want to & for yourself) but I certainly don’t want to slap ads on any edublogs.

So, it’s going to have to be sponsorship & partnership. Here’s the deal…

  • Plain old simple advertising as a ’supporter’ on
  • Inclusion (and write up) in the newsletter
  • Inclusion in the ‘backend’ of each blog (this can be done in a number of ways)
  • Partnership in offering users tools and services
