Boston Business Journal associate editor Mark Leccese The Elements of BloggingYou’re an academic, busy with research and teaching. You don’t have time to blog! Wrong. Not only can you blog, you can use your blog to get your work before a much wider audience and to lead an ongoing conversation about your topic. Join us Wednesday, January 27 from 4-5 p.m. ET for the TAA webinar, “Blogging for Academics: A Journalist Turned Academic Offers Tips, Techniques, Inspiration and a Few Warnings”, presented by Mark Leccese, author of The Elements of Blogging: Expanding the Conversation of Journalism.

You write all the time anyway — class lectures and notes, passages of articles, long emails about what you’re working on, advice to students. If you can make some tweaks to what you already write to make it interesting and so a general audience can understand it, and if you have the technical savvy to write an email with an attachment, you can blog. This one-hour webinar will cover:

  • Getting started
  • Writing headlines
  • Using images
  • Linking strategies
  • Dealing with comments
  • Building an audience
  • Having fun with your blog

This webinar is for TAA members only. Join today to participate!
