The ME Blogger Campaign Was Successfully Completed On January 1st, 2009!!!
Get ready… we are going to be updating this list on a “rolling” basis in June of 2011!
The ME Blogger Campaign played a VITAL role in getting better information about Music Education and Music Technology on to the Internet. In addition, it was one of the first catalysts that
moved Music Educators into the online collaborative world of “Web 2.0”.
Welcome to the page for all of the information related to our 100 ME Bloggers campaign! This page also contains links to a number of the related posts on MusTech.net about the 100 ME Bloggers! campaign.

The Rules as listed to become a ME Blogger:
- You must have (or have started) a blog site and not a simple website.
- You must agree to post as regularly as you able to about a topic that is interesting to you, your students, the music audience as a whole, etc. that related to music education and/or music technology in the classroom environment. Literally, you can almost blog about anything related… the “world is your oyster!”. I know many of you can’t post every day (I don’t-ok, not usually ;) ),week, or even couple-to-three weeks, but let’s strive for at least a post a month! :)
- You must agree to not “covet” all your materials and share many of them, freely, with the world so we all can gain from everyone’s expertise and experiences. Of course you are free to copyright your creative works and ideas as you see fit, afterall they’re yours! We are encouraging ME Bloggers to consider using a creative commons license (your pick!) to help them preserve their ideas while allowing others to access them in ways that the ME Bloggers see fit. Becoming a ME Blogger does not in anyway obligate you to give up an of your commercial venues or have everything on your blog “given away anything or everthing for free”. It simply means that you are blogging for the good of music education and that you are part of the global conversation about it! What we are NOT looking for in a ME bloggers is a blog that is specifically designed to sell products and/or services.
- You must actively participate in our “global conversation” about our field by joining in the conversation with others:
- Agreeing to comment on other ME Bloggers posts as you are able to and have the ability to contribute or encourage
- Share your blog with others by linking to the other ME Bloggers in either your blogroll or a page of ME Bloggers
- Agreeing to answer legitimate questions by ME Bloggers and others that post questions on your site in a timely manner.
- Let me/us know you exist! Comment after this post, or visit our
- When you become an ME blogger, post about our campaign as much as you want, tell your friends…we know this is going to be a long haul…let’s take the first step together!
