To my mind, the opportunity to post regular pieces
help to refine my writing and give me immediate
feedback from an audience that may be interested
in public affairs. Later, we realized that many of the
regular readers would refer to the IEA-Kenya’s
website to get more information after reading a
piece in which they have an interest. Our surveys
show that it directs some traffic from the blog
post back to the IEA-Kenya site. In addition, a
blog post in a major paper allows for feedback and
responses that allows us to gauge the level of
public interest in a given policy area. This
feedback can be used to inform additional
research or to inform further communication.
