It is officially July 31st, 2012 in Melbourne, Australia – where exactly 7 years ago today our fearless founder, James Farmer, flipped the switch and Edublogs was born!

We thought you might enjoy a screenshot from The Wayback Machine of what our first site looked like just a few weeks after launch:

The best part of all is that to us, we feel like we are just getting started.

With over 1.3 million blogs here on Edublogs.org, and over half-a-million more on our Edublogs Campus networks, we will breaking the 2 million blog barrier very soon!

From all of us here on the Edublogs team, we truly appreciate all of the support we’ve received over the years from all of our users.

And we look forward to bringing blogging into more and more classrooms in the years to come!

Happy blogging!
