Well done for getting started on your blogs. We’re really looking forward to seeing how these develop and hope you find them a useful resource and space to reflect on your learning and research journey.
As we discussed last week, a good first step would be if you could create a ‘page’ and perhaps a ‘post’ to go on your blog.
Most blogs have an ‘about me’ page which allows those who visit your site to get an idea about who is writing the blog, and provides a context for what you’re writing about. It would be helpful if you could create an ‘about me’ blog before tomorrow’s ‘blogging clinic’ tomorrow afternoon (1.30-3pm – in the IT room in Birley that we were in last Thursday). There’s no right or wrong way to write this but you might want to think about including some or all of the following information:
- Your education and professional background
- Your research interests
- How you came to be on the MRes – Why this course? What are you hoping to get from it? etc.
- Personal interests (if you wish!)
- Maybe a photo?
Have a go if you can, and we can discuss this and other blog-related issues tomorrow afternoon.
