Writing a blog post is a great way to provide information in a concise and nice way to a broad range of public. In fact, academics increasingly blog about ideas and their latest findings. Their Golden Rule: Assume your reader to be completely new to the topic. At Leiden University, this trend does not only become visible in class where academic blogs regularly replace essay assignments but also in the variety of university blogs written by students and academic staff.
