Graham Warren has set up a pretty extensive edublogs.org community discussion area using php bulletin board, why not head over there and see if you can hook up with like minded edubloggers.
I’m very aware that there have been some serious performance / speed issues this week – partly due to school starting back and partly doe to some network / configuration issues.
