BLOG POST FORMAT

  • Write your blog posts in paragraph form, keeping in mind that digital content and journalism often uses shorter paragraphs than academic writing.
  • It is very important to have a clear point and structure.
  • Let your readers know right away what your main argument is going to be.
  • Use hyperlinks to provide further information, evidence or as shorthand for references you make to past cultures or broader contexts.
  • Citations are only needed for academic sources. You can hyperlink other web content.
  • Use images and videos to illustrate your points, but do not overwhelm the text with them.

Each post must include:

  1. A visual (embed film or static image) and set your visual as the ‘featured image.’
  2. At least 3 hyperlinks to explanatory content or further information.
  3. At least 3 citations from academic material; 1 must be from our reading list.
  4. At least 1 category and 3 tags
  5. ‘Endnote’ style citations. Remember to put in the page number if it is a direct quote.

For example:

in text:
