Do You Blog About Ubuntu? December 22, 2006

Posted by Carthik in navel, ubuntu, Ubuntu Sites.

As I was surfing the ‘net earlier today, I realized that we all are missing out on a lot. There are a lot of small, unknown, unnoticed bloggers blogging about Ubuntu, and some of these posts are good, very good. The blog that I found with the post about Moms loving Ubuntu is another example. These are a pleasure to discover and read. Since these blogs are not on the planet, pretty much the only way to find them is through serendipity. Which brings us to the point of this post:

Dear Reader,

Do you blog about Ubuntu?
If you do, I personally would love to read what you write. Could you please write a post and pingback this post? In most blogging tools (at least in WordPress), just adding a link to this post will pingback the post.
If that is too much to ask, could you leave a comment? I thought pingbacks are easier that filling out that comment form. If you have an “Ubuntu” category I will subscribe to it in my feedreader.
With enough entries, I will create a page listing the blogs, which will be a useful resource to others and free publicity for your stunts!

Eagerly awaiting your replies!

A list like this already exists on the forums. But hey, why would i refuse a free advert – everythingelse.wordpress.com

8. robitaille - December 22, 2006

I wonder what would be a good way to tap into that well of online knowledge about Ubuntu and present way in an useful and friendly way to the world? Maybe what we need is an userplanet.ubuntu.com or community.ubuntu.com to complement the more official planet.ubuntu.com that would aggregate these non-ubuntu-member blogs.

You can follow to the ubuntu tag in site like wordpress.com (http://wordpress.com/tag/ubuntu/), and I’m sure other blog sites have similar tags, but there are only small subsets of the Ubuntu blogging community.

I’ve blogged about Ubuntu, but I also talk a lot about it in a mailing list and use it in the office as well. The difference is that I talk to Deaf people.

My blogs about Ubuntu are via vlog’s – using BSL (British Sign Language) aimed toward a Deaf audience in the UK on my blog which are all vlog’s rather than a typed blog in English.

11. prem - December 22, 2006

Here is the facinating ubuntu blogs you will definitely love it and ubuntu related howto’s,articles and screenshots



12. molgar - December 22, 2006

I guess http://www.technorati.com/tag/ubuntu is a good place to start. I’m even subscribed to it’s rss feed.

13. Phil Thane - December 22, 2006

I don’t blog, but I write about Kubuntu for TUX (www.tuxmagazine.com) and ‘Beginners’ Linux’ for Micro Mart (www.micromart.co.uk). I get paid for both and the editors wouldn’t commission me unless their research showed people read it! The nice thing is both are aimed at ‘normal’ users, not nerds, IT graduates, techies just mainstream folk with an interest in computers.

14. I blog about Ubuntu! at Jeremy Visser - December 22, 2006

[…] I just came across a post via the Planet Ubuntu. Yup, I blog about Ubuntu every so often. Every post I make about Ubuntu is tagged, and appears in this feed. […]

I post the odd article about ubuntu – mostly dealing with stuff I’ve got working on it – or useful tools for web developers using ColdFusion, PHP or Flash/Flex on Ubuntu.

20. bapoumba - December 22, 2006

Hey, I’ve starter a little something two weeks ago, for my friends and I. I do translate in English what is relevant to Ubuntu, not many entries so far. I questioned myself whether I would make that blog public or not, first time I am actually talking about it. I plan mostly to file tutorials when information is scattered or too complicated for beginners, and linux-women stuff πŸ˜‰

21. David Winter - December 22, 2006

I have a few how-to’s on Ubuntu:

32. Pingbacking about Ubuntu « Pau Arumi’s blog - December 22, 2006

[…] I have to confess I’m new to blogs and I’m learning some of its very common features. An interesting one is the pingback or traceback protocol. The new thing for me was to learn that a normal link to another blog entry is all you have to do to get linked back. For example, yesterday I read in ubuntu planet a blog entry asking for people blogging about ubuntu (and here am I). […]

33. Tristan Rhodes - December 22, 2006

I often blog about Ubuntu on my blog called “The Open Source Advocate”.

p.s. only for those who understand serbian πŸ˜‰

35. Gouki - December 22, 2006

I had the idea of creating a Planet for Ubuntu users, open to everyone who wrote quality post, and not just official ubuntu members.

This is something I’ll probabily do in a near future.

36. Thomas David Baker - December 22, 2006

I have been known to mention Ubuntu (which I run as my only desktop OS) at:

39. arcanecode - December 22, 2006

A few days ago I did a rather lengthy post on how to install and run Ubuntu under Virtual PC. The thought being folks who wanted to experiment but were still a bit afraid of moving off windows could have a safe way to learn a new OS without fear of destroying their existing one. You can see it at:


40. Marc - December 22, 2006

I have two blogs that deal with with Linux (and a lot of Ubuntu since that’s what I run at home):


41. christian - December 22, 2006

Well, sometimes. In http://www.fluctus.de/wp/?cat=10 I post about pc & linux stuff (mostly my change from MS to Ubuntu) and some things that pop up while trying to finetune my system πŸ™‚

42. christian - December 22, 2006

43. jetteroheller - December 22, 2006

I blogged today not about Ubuntu, but about the lack of Linux development tools for regular old web guys. Aptana, NVu, Quanta — they’re all nowhere compared to something like Dreamweaver. My wordpress blogging interface is frankly a better UI for web dev!

44. I blog about Xubuntu « customising life - December 22, 2006

i love ubuntu and blog about occasionally here:

46. Marius - December 22, 2006

I sometimes blog about Ubuntu as well, see the Linux category (it is the only Linux I use):

47. Ed - December 22, 2006

I recently started a new blog about my recent effort to become reacquainted with Linux. So far it mostly pertains to Ubuntu/Kubuntu, but I plan to expand it to include my thoughts on where I want to go with open source in general.

48. suribe - December 22, 2006
49. Matt Smith - December 22, 2006

I blog about Ubuntu in general, not been doing it for so long though.

50. Gouki - December 22, 2006

I decided to take the idea of a Planet for Ubuntu users forward. If anyone is interested in helping out (mainly webdesign) please contact me.

51. Ubuntu Tutorials - December 22, 2006

I run an Ubuntu Tutorial blog. Updated daily with tips, tricks, etc. Popularity has been continuing to rise and been on the front page of Digg twice now. I’d love to contribute or help build a list of Ubuntu blog resources.

/me wonders if he should get syndicated on the Planet considering he’s been an Ubuntu member for a year now… what do you think?

52. Gouki - December 22, 2006

Ubuntu Tutorials – You may contact the person responsable for running Ubuntu’s Planet.

I’ve been a reader of your weblog for a couple of weeks and I really like the content. In case you’re interested, I would be happy to have you on the Planet I’m working on for Ubuntu users (=

56. Ubuntu Blogs « My Two Cents - December 23, 2006

[…] Probably the most popular Ubuntu blog in the world, apart from the official one, is Carthik Sharma’s. Carthik invited fellow bloggers to tell him whether they too blog about Ubuntu. The response is amazing. Nice to see that so many people are using FOSS operating systems. […]

57. Andy Hadfield - December 23, 2006

We’re definitely not an Ubuntu blog – but we’ve got quite a bit of eyeball recently for a project we’re looking to start – rolling out Ubuntu across South Africa’s medical hospitals, who are currently paralysed with old, non-functional windows machines… You’ll prob see a bit more coming on the medical software for linux, specifically ubuntu.

Mine is not a strictly Ubuntu blog, but I often speak about this distro, since I just moved my laptop from Slackware to Ubuntu after many many years. Oh, it is in italian.


65. Luke - December 24, 2006

I don’t blog exclusively about Ubuntu, but I do talk about it now and then.


66. Jad - December 25, 2006

Dude, I guess I have mistakenly flooded you, please ignore it and accept my apology

67. foncu - December 25, 2006

I sometimes blog about Ubuntu, just because my blog is about GNU/Linux and Ubuntu is the distribution that I use. Anyway I only write in Spanish, so I think that you won’t find it very useful.
If I ever start blogging in English too, I will let you know.
