Find your voice

Don’t use “the passive voice”.

This is not your dissertation, you don’t need to use formal language. You could even try to make your writing more engaging for a wider audience? In YOUR blog you should let your personality leak out in your writing. Express your opinions, tell the world about your work, or your thoughts. Use humour!

TIP: maybe by trying to use “plain English“?

If this is NOT YOUR blog, maybe it is a department’s newsfeed or a project blog, then make sure you understand the parameters you should work to – but still personalise what you’re writing.


This is part of the first series of posts about how to write for your blog.
