UW Blogs Network

Notice: Blogs Network has been replaced with a new service:  UW Sites

Just like Blogs, UW Sites allows faculty, staff, and also students to create their own websites using the WordPress platform. Existing blogs will remain active and all site owners will be contacted about plans to transfer to the new service soon.


The UW Blogs Network provides a blogging service for UW faculty and staff. It uses the open-source WordPress application. Features include:

  • Easy to get a blog up and running within minutes.
  • Blogs have a UW theme and branding.
  • The service is administered by UW-IT so blog owners don’t have to deal with installation.
  • Ability to administer site by logging in with your NetID: no need to remember a new password.

By visiting the UW Blogs Network Home you can view sites on the network as well as explore the documentation.

If your question is not answered by the UW Blogs Network documentation, please email for assistance.
