The focus of Island Blogging has changed to make the site a searchable archive of rich stories, all courtesy of the dedicated Island Bloggers from Scotland's islands. Here you will find a wealth of great blogs and comments offering a unique insight into daily life on Scottish islands between 2003 and 2010, written by the islanders themselves. Personal stories were shared and events on the islands were documented through the blogs of individual islanders.

If you would like to keep up with the Island Bloggers, visit the new site at:

Other bloggers are using their own blogs on other sites so we recommend that you check the most recent posts from each individual blogger to find out how you can keep up with them.

If you're interested in blogging in general you could try one of the public blogging engines, many of which are free. While we can't recommend a specific engine, you'll find more information here:

Enjoy the blogs and photos.
