Managing your blog
1. Any member can start a blog on their personal profile page here at the Research Cooperative.
Thanks very much for your blog! Have you joined our group for bloggers yet?
We hope your posts will attract readers from around the world.
2. How can blogs be effectively supported and promoted through the Research Cooperative?
There are things that you the author can do, and things that any member can do:
Authors - Naming the blog after yourself is quite standard in the blogosphere. But if you have a special theme that you wish to explore over time, it can be good to have a more topical title. Also, if you are planning a series, or have any other aims in advance, it can be good to post an introduction or announcement describing (i) the plan, and (ii) yourself, and (iii) how you would like articles in your blog to be used and referred to - i.e. your copyright and publishing details).
Then you can grab the URL for the introduction post from the browser window, and use it as a link for a piece of text (e.g. "About this blog", or "About my blog") which can be copied into the top or bottom of every message you send, inside and outside the Research Cooperative, and in the signature to your standard email. You can also introduce yourself and your blog in our group for Research Co-op Bloggers.
All members can help by telling others about Research Co-op blogs of special interest for people in your own personal network, inside and beyond the Research Cooperative.
