About W3C Blog

The W3C Blog allows the W3C Team and collaborators to complement news and events by going in-depth on Web standards topics and educational materials. The blog is operated by the W3C Marketing & Communications Team.


Members of the W3C Team or W3C groups are authors of the W3C Blog, through the W3C Communications Team.

A Blog post can be attributed to several authors. If the author(s) hold(s) an up-to-date W3C account, the software can draw a profile picture.

Review & coordination

Blog posts must be coordinated and reviewed a week in advance. Please, coordinate with the W3C Communications Team, which is responsible for maintaining tone, manner and guidelines for W3C, and manages the brand.
