The Blog Generator Machine! by David Deubelbeiss

I came across the fabulous "Blog Generator" machine below via David Deubelbeiss' wonderfully informative blog EFL Classroom 2.0 All you have to do is press the link, and hey presto, it will take you to a random blog from the TEFL world. Some are well-known, others may be totally new for you. This is an inspirational idea, which helps to highlight the huge variety of blogs that are written all over the world. I really enjoyed playing with this feature and I decided I wanted to show it here, so that you can have a go as well, if you haven't already seen it on other blogs. I can assure you, you will find many hidden gems within the lucky dip!

I'd like to say a huge thank you to David for allowing everyone to share the download of this great and fun creation. As David says "There are 130 blogs in the bunch, culled only in two ways. 1. They have been regularly updated (at least 1 post in the last 3 weeks) 2. Are not commercial mouthpieces (however soft)."

thanks a bunch for writing about the ELT Random Blog generator! I'm enjoying it too (who says cooks can't enjoy their own cooking?).

I've added more blogs, now up to around 150) and have been working hard (happily) to keep the quality/recency there.

I have some ideas I might implement in the future, it is a work in progress.

Thanks again, hope many get lucky!

Hi David

Thank you so much for commenting here. I definitely think cooks have the right to enjoy their own cooking, especially when it's of gourmet quality!

I look forward to playing on the Blog Generator and discovering more lovely gems. It truly is a brilliant idea.

Oh my - what a fun! I don't know whether to be delighted or curse you both because I will be tempted to spend far too much time playing with this.

I am sure you will be delighted Vicki when you come across some hidden gems which will leave an impression on you :) That's why I love it- it's like a magical mystery tour!
