What is BluWiki?
BluWiki is a site dedicated to helping you say something online. It uses wiki software to make it as easy as possible for anyone to put content on our site. This means Grandma can upload her cat photos, Dad can create an online book of recipes, and Mom can collaborate with co-workers. Yeah, it's cool - but don't take our word for it; create your own page and give BluWiki a spin. Oh, and it's completely free.
The BluWiki Vision
Bringing web publishing to the people. Imagine a world where everyone can publish online. Without censorship, popups, or banner ads. And you don't even have to know html! That's right, just good old-fashioned text publishing. Help us accomplish this vision, make BluWiki your home on the web.

New to Wikis?
A Wiki is a website that generally allows, and even encourages, all of its visitors to contribute by editing the site. Wikis are therefore designed to make it as easy as possible to add content online - often users only need to click the "edit" button and start typing.
BluWiki uses this wiki technology, but to a different end than most wikis. The site's purpose is to enable users to publish their own content online, not to contribute to a common body of knowledge.
There are several Wiki variants online. The BluWiki website uses the most popular, MediaWiki variant. Editing MediaWiki pages are easy, you can use both Wiki Markup and (in most cases) HTML. See our help section for more information.
Who runs BluWiki?
Sam Odio started BluWiki. Originally he did most of the site's maintenance & development. Over time as the community developed many stepped up to help out. In particular, I'd like to thank Nathan, Bear, Duncan Dewar, and Chotchki. Sam's other projects took off & he sold the site, donating the proceeds to charity. Leah Landly (pictured left) is our current community manager.
The site has received about $125 in contributions from a few sponsors. The site is kept free mostly because of the support of members and Google ads on a few of our pages.
Due to moderate ad revenues and user donations this site went from losing money every month (the server costs well over $100) to making a small profit, which has allowed us to hire Leah as our full time community manager.
