Does Teachable Have a Blogging Feature?

Teachable does not have a blogging feature available on any of its plans

The platform did include the ability to blog, but it was removed from the platform in June 2021. 

Teachable schools that had the blog feature enabled prior to June 2021 were able to keep their blogs, but any new schools or existing schools that didn’t have the blogging feature enabled were no longer able to use it.

However, it is still possible to use a blog with Teachable. To do so, you must integrate the platform with DropInBlog – a third-party blogging app.

This platform provides an easy, no-code way to blog with user commenting and social sharing features enabled. Plans cost from $49/month after a 14-day free trial.
