Share your research via blogging & social media | 23 Research Things

The 23 Research Things blog gets meta with a blog on blogging this week. Check out Thing #9 on blogging for research, and follow it up with Thing #10 on social media and strategies to enhance your researcher profile.

Blogging (Thing 09)

Blogs allow researchers to engage with a broad audience, including other researchers, in a less formal and more open way than traditional academic publishing. They provide an avenue to publish both research stories and expert commentary. In this post, Jonathan O’Donnell shares some insights gained from his popular blog Research Whisperer, which he co-writes with Tseen Khoo.

Using Social Media to Promote your Research (Thing 08)

Social media can be a powerful tool for networking and raising your research profile. Its conversational style fosters open, informal professional connections and enables engagement with broader communities of interest. In this post, Andrea Hurt and Lisa O’Sullivan introduce the ‘big three’ social media platforms: Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
