To give me some ideas on how to use blog for academic purposes, I decided to look at how other people used it to journal their research. While I was unable to find blogs that would specifically relate to my situation (Master’s student blogs that would focus on topics related to animation), I found that blog called The Thesis Whisperer, edited by Dr Inger Mewburn, has a post with a long list of various PhD student blogs. And while the list is way too long for me to properly read through each one of them, I took the liberty investigating several by choosing them randomly.
Luckily enough, I was able to find a couple that really gave me some inspiration for my blog:
- Sara Batts – Research project progress – I love how Dr Sara Batts gives straightforward insight into different steps of her PhD, including different aspects and parts of the thesis.
- How to Write a PhD in a Hundred Steps (or more) – less concise, but talks both about academic writing and PhD as a personal journey.
