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