Event description
Blogging is an excellent way to make your research more accessible, and to develop your reputation as a public scholar.

About this event

Learning to blog effectively brings together many great benefits such as knowing how to write in an engaging manner for broader audiences, focused networking, participating in (and leading!) conversations around your areas of expertise, and clarity around your research purpose.

This intensive is comprised of 3 workshops across 3 days (from 1:00-3:00 pm each day). We take you through the basics of blogging and features hands-on blog writing, planning, and the chance to discuss your ideas with experts and peers.

The first workshop in the ‘Blogging your research’ program introduces participants to the idea of blogging, why researchers do it, and its key benefits. The session features activities that allow you to think through your blogging ideas and craft a blogpost!

The second workshop focuses on what it means to manage a blog. It will help answer questions about how much time it takes, ways to maintain a stream of good content, and provide strategies for dealing with problems (such as trolling, people ‘stealing’ ideas, etc). You’ll get the chance to create a blogging strategy, too!

The final workshop in the intensive looks at what happens after you have started a blog and want to share your content more widely. What are the strategies you can use to do this effectively? You’ll be helping us finalise and publish a blogpost in this session!
