Tips for sharing your blogs and case comments
- First log in or register if you haven't already done so. You can find a link below this list or at the top of the page. Make sure you bookmark this page so you can come back to it after the login/registration process.
- Choose the type of blog you'd like to create. If you're not sure what to write in your text blog on law cases, read this article on how to research a blog post and delve into the various sections for a prompt. If you're making a video blog (or vlog) you might like to watch this guide to making video.
- Give your blog a title. By describing the key issue or theme as succinctly as possible, other people will be more likely to view it. Try to avoid generic titles like "Joe Bloggs's law and religion blog", unless you're sure lots of people will be looking for your name!
- Add your text content in the body text area.
- If you're creating a video or audio blog, you'll need to first upload it to a site like YouTube, Vimeo or Soundcloud. Copy the embed code from the relevant site and paste it into the form below.
- You can then choose a category for the diary. Click on any tags that relate to your content—tagging your content makes it easier for other people to find.
- If your diary relates to a specific location, find it on the map.
- Add a short summary—a sentence or so—that decribes your content.
- Then add a cover image. This is the main image people will see when browsing the Sacred and secular blogs. This should be 185px wide by 106px high. The more interesting and unique the image, the better it will stand out!
