#shareEGU20: Science blogging for beginners

Published on 28 Dec 2021 / In People & Blogs

As people's opinions about science are polarising around the globe, it is becoming increasingly important for scientists to engage with non-scientific audiences. One way of doing this is through science blogs. In this webinar, four EGU division blog editors introduce you to the world of science blogging, share some do's and don'ts, and most importantly: put you to work! It includes a tutorial on how to prepare a blog post. You can send the resulting blog post to the Short Course team (EGU2020.sc.blogs@gmail.com) throughout the first week of May 2020 to get feedback!
