Major PrimaryBlogger News

Great news everyone!  After four years providing free blogs to Primary Schools, we are now allowing sign-ups from Secondary Schools, Academys, Colleges, and other Educational Institutes.

What does this mean? 

We’ve added academyblogger.co.uk, schoolblogs.org and secondaryblogger.co.uk to the options that are available when signing up for a new blog, which means academies and secondaries can now have a blog address that reflects their status.

Here’s an example

What are we trying to achieve?

This was a direct result of our users’ feedback and is part of a new committment to develop PrimaryBlogger as a service for all educational establishments.

Can I move my current blog to the new domains and can we have more than one?

At this time only new blogs can use the new domain names, and each blog is limited to one domain. You could however export your content, create a new blog and import your content again, creating a duplicated blog. Check out our guide on the matter.

Blog Address Availability

The new domains give you the opportunity to register a blog that may have already been taken under the primaryblogger.co.uk address, allowing a more memorable address to share with others.

Has anything changed?

No, nothing has changed. We have just added new domains completely free!

Use Your Own Web Address

Did you know you can use your own domain name to personalise your PrimaryBlogger experience even more? Once you’ve bought your domain name you can follow the instructions in Tools > Add a Domain. Want your own domain but don’t know how to get started? We can take care of it for you… Use our support site if you need any assistance.

Suggest A Web Address

We love to hear from our users. If you’ve got any domain name ideas that you think would benefit everyone who uses PrimaryBlogger, let us know.

What Does The Future Hold For PrimaryBlogger?

We’re looking to add more addresses to differentiate blogs thoughout education, we’ll update our blog each time we add a new address. We hope this makes people feel more comfortable and allows PrimaryBlogger to be accessible to every teacher, lecturer and educator.

Sometimes we get email that really make all of the hard work we put in worthwhile. Here is one of those emails:

Just a note to say thank you for the excellent two packages I have used today. As you are no doubt aware that today was a strike day and unfortunately our school decided to close. Without politics being discussed I decided not to strike and used the Internet and two of your packages to host my lessons – run from the classroom, but with children in their homes. The technology worked seamlessly. My only issue was not having names on primary paint.  The software was quality all over and made my interactive lessons almost as they would be in the classroom. Thanks again.

So not only did we get some positive, quality feedback we also got a bug report :) Thanks to the sender!
