- PrestonLodge.net today, 8th March 2010, is celebrating it’s 3rd Birthday!
It’s been 3 years to the day since PrestonLodge.net was first registered on Edubuzz.org, the East Lothian educational blogging community. And what a long way we’ve come!
Starting with just two main sites – the main PrestonLodge.net site, and ‘Today @ PLHS’ – the daily notices for use in school, we now have around 30 contributing sites from subject sites, to yearbooks, to pupil web jotters, PrestonLodge.net is a vast network of contributors from around the school. By far the largest portion of Edubuzz.org, PrestonLodge.net has over 120 teachers, pupils and office staff adding to the site almost daily.
Consistently top of the web traffic hits across the community, PrestonLodge.net is beating the likes of Don Ledingham’s Learning Log, North Berwick High School (and all the other High Schools in the area), and is currently sitting at 1580 email subscribers consisting of parents, pupils and alumni. News from the school is now frequent and more easily accessible than most others!
Debuting new web technologies to the education scene in East Lothian has been PrestonLodge.net’s specialty – from RSS feeds to newsletters, embedded forms and calendars, interactive magazines and documents, to widgets and discussions – PrestonLodge.net is making web publishing available to the many, and not exclusive to the technically able few. It just goes to show how quickly new technologies arise in just a few short years – who knows what features will be around in the next few years?!
So thank you to all our avid readers, contributors, editors and technical helpers, and Well Done and Happy Birthday to PrestonLodge.net!
