A Blog: Purpose and audience
The purpose of an academic blog is to document your learning and to present to the world, your audience, a perspective that reveals your academic interests.
In documenting my learning I also use my blog as a way to reflect, make connections, to curate information and save references. Having written and curated information in a post means that I can easily share my resources with other people who have similar interests.
Writing a Post
The key to blogging is to post often and to do this requires creating a post quickly. Short blogs are best, use short paragraphs, headings and hyperlinks to make information clear. I like to use an image from Unsplash or create a meme, but only if I have time.
Categories and Tags
Categories are like chapters in a book and tags are like the index.
Here are some strategies and examples that I use to write a blog post efficiently.
1. Use a Thinking Routine
2.Reply to an article or post
A reply to post can be really quick to write due to a direct focus on the text. Use headings and quotes to draw connections to your topic.
