Whenever you first create a blog here on edublogs.org you are given a brand new URL, or link, for your site.
For example, studentchallenge.edublogs.org is the URL for the Student Blogging Challenge blog.
As of today, you can also access the same site using studentchallenge.edublogs.com – see what we did there?
Even though the .org ending is the real URL (and the one you should use and give out to people), the .com ending will now work!
This will especially come in handy when giving out class blog links to students and parents that can forget or get the URL mixed-up.
Other Fun URL Facts
- We see lots of users that out of habit, put a www. at the beginning of their URL. And while that will work too, it makes your link longer than it needs to be. Leave the www off! :)
- You can use domain mapping to change your URL to any available domain on the web. For example, theedublogger.edublogs.org is domain mapped to theedublogger.com – which is much shorter and easier to remember!
- You can have an unlimited number of blogs, all with different URLs, with your one username. Just go to the “My Blogs” page in your dashboard to create new ones or manage the ones you already have.
