Make your blog look like Twitter or Facebook

Did you know that two of our newest premium themes can make your blog look like it is right out of Twitter or Facebook?  We bet students are going to love these!

The Retweet Theme

The Retweet theme is highly customizable, complete with multiple background images and the ability to choose from any color scheme imaginable.


Other features include a list of latest posts right at the top, integration with Twitter, customizable logo image, and quick social bookmarking capabilities.

Visit Amelia’s Awesome Blog for an example of a student blog using this new theme.

Smells Like Facebook

This new theme looks so much like Facebook that it is easy to get confused as to what site you are on while using it!

You can add a logo image, use one or two sidebars for widgets, and fake out friends with a real looking facebook blog.  :)

Make your edublog frontpage news

With our new design there are some new ways you can promote, share, biggup and generally pimp your edublog.

First up there are ‘blogs of the hour’ – this is determined by which blogs across the community had the most readers in the last hour and is updated every 20 minutes. We prefer this to ‘of the day’ as it reflects different edubloggers in different timezones, and therefore profiles more great blogs.

BUT in order to really get the most out of it, you’re gonna want to upload an avatar (Options > Avatar) so get uploading!

Then there’s the ‘edublogs universe’ lower down on the frontpage… a brilliant way to find interesting edublogs and individual posts. It’s simple to get involved in this, just use categories when you;re posting (here’s a how to).

edublog tags

Here’s a great article too about how one edublogger is using tags.

If you know any other great ways to get your edublog noticed, let us know about them!

Provide some details for your blog
No stress, you can always change this later on.
