Best practices for Blogging

The rules for blogging are quite simple and if they are followed correctly they can make collaboration and idea sharing a positive experience for both educator and learner.

  1. Engage your readers by being open and honest
  2. Organize your posts so that they are easy to follow and easy to navigate
  3. Provide links and other tags that will allow the reader to further their learning.
  4. Connect to other professionals and learners to build an online community of resources.
  5. Subscribe to blogs that align with your interests and goals (Banner, 2017).
