Event description

Description

The Doctoral College Symposia provide a day of workshops and talks that help support your growing knowledge and skill development as a research.

This symposium will focus on blogging and will provide an introduction to blogging, some technical tips and some editorial advice.

The session will cover:

  • What blogging is?
  • What blogging isn't (or shouldn't be).
  • Why you should blog.
  • What blogging can do for you professionally - whether you work in the profit or not-for-profit sectors?
  • What blogging can do for you personally?
  • Why "content is king."
  • How to find things to blog about. Content calendars and Google alerts.
  • Structure - why linear may not be best for online content.
  • Writing "hooks" that grab attention and "twists" that keep it.
  • Style - why conversational is best.
  • First, second or third person? Why writing about you in the first person is usually the best option and the case against it.
  • Frequency and regularity.
  • Quality versus quantity.
  • How long should a blog be? The optimum length for posts.
  • Comments - getting your readers involved.
  • Activating your copy - using grammar and vocabulary to bring your words to life

This workshop is open to all doctoral researchers at the University of Wolverhampton.

Please not that this workshop will be available on Periscope @wlv_doctoralcol
