The Monterey Institute blogging community, powered by WordPress, is an open-source platform for building blogs and websites – meaning that you have complete control and ownership over your content. You can create a site as a student and then take your content and design with you wherever you go after graduation. You can also create sites that are private to search engines so that they won’t appear when someone “googles” your name.
Any member of the Monterey Institute community (i.e. students, faculty, staff, and alumni) can log into Blogs @ MIIS using their Middlebury network credentials.
- Your username will be everything before the @ in your miis.edu email address (most likely your first initial followed by your last name).
- Your password will be the password associated with your miis.edu email account.
If you’ve lost your password for the blogging community, you’ll need to reset your Middlebury network username and password.
If you are an alumni, please contact Rebecca Walters, New Media Development Specialist, so that we can set up a unique username and password for you.
Create a Blog
Once you’ve logged in, you can create a new blog in seconds by choosing a site name (i.e. the URL) and title. You can set your blog to public or private, choosing whether or not you would like the site to appear in search engines.
You can create a blog that has multiple admins and authors. To do this, please make sure everyone in your group has already logged-in to the blogging community for the first time. Then email Rebecca Walters, the New Media Development Specialist, with the full list of admins and authors so that she can grant everyone editing access to the blog.
