Last month, we announced the coming release of the UW Blogs Network for faculty and staff, powered by WordPress. For those of you who couldn’t wait to get started on your own UW blog, we have good news: it’s now available! By going to blogs.uw.edu, you can learn more or start creating your own UW WordPress-powered blog. Please note that you must activate the UW Blog Network through your myUW account (these steps will be covered in the second half of the post).
We at Learning Technologies would like to help get you started. If you continue reading, we will provide a quick step-by-step tutorial on getting started with a UW blog. If you feel you need to get a little more inspired first, check out some existing UW Blogs.
Update: Thanks to the UW Bothell Web Team for informing us about the custom Bothell theme that has been developed for UW Bothell pages. See below for details on changing the default theme.
