  • Keep it accessible in terms of language, length, tone and contentSource: HaraldWeinreich, HartmutObendorf, Eelco Herder, and Matthias Mayer: “Not Quite the Average: An Empirical Study of Web Use,” in the ACM Transactions on the Web, vol. 2, no. 1 (February 2008), article #5.
  • Although blogging can be about sharing your writing with others, it is often primarily a personal space for thinking out loud, clarifying ideas and thoughts, and reflecting on practice or ideasEven if you are writing for an audience, it is typically a much wider and diverse audience than a niche academic community, so style, tone, language and length should reflect this
  • Blogging is a safe place or sandbox to practice; you are not subject to peer review so you don’t need to produce a perfect, finished article and it is easier to give yourself permission to ‘write badly’
  • I like to use blogging as a ‘prewriting’ strategy sometimeshttp://test.org.uk/2014/01/05/dont-get-bigger-get-weirder-things-ive-learnt-from-5-years-of-the-story/ (2014)
