Since Blogger is one of those weird services that’s still not quite compatible with Google Apps, there’s not an easy way to list blogs owned by others in our domain. Not that I’ve yet found, anyway.
You can try Blogger Search, though; it’s available in a bunch of different ways:
- http://www.google.com/blogsearch (the above two are just shortcuts to here; they just might be easier to remember.)
- Or, you can use the search box in the top toolbar when viewing any Blogger-based blog.
Some help is available at the Blog Search FAQ page, but it seems to be a bit outdated.
Currently, just searching for “mail.wou.edu” (our Google Apps domain name) doesn’t get you much, but once more of us get active and start linking to each other, that should change. Right now it’s probably best to search for a specific person’s blog using “mail.wou.edu” and their name, like so:
This will search the contents of all publicly available entries in the Blogger system, so you’ll probably also get results from outside WOU, but anything from the blog you’re looking for should be near the top.
Now, I’m not sure why this search only returned one entry, since Nathan has more than that in his blog, but the important thing is that it gives the blog’s address.
Later I’ll post on how to add a blog to your blog’s sidebar, or to the list of blogs in your dashboard.
