We would love to hear from you

Our blog has readers from all over the world including Aotearoa-New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, UK, France, Japan, Norway, Canada, United States and Indonesia. In 2017 we had 28 posts, 11,607 views, 7,766 visitors from 93 countries, 132 likes and 82 comments.  We would love to hear from you all, your opinions, feedback, critiques, future directions, and of course, your blogs.

We want to learn from people’s stories about doing Indigenous research, being an Indigenous researcher or relevant Indigenous themes. Our blog focus is not about knowing or even teaching; rather, it is about sharing and engagement.  So if you are interested in sharing your stories with us, please let us know.  We also welcome back anyone who has blogged before and is interested in doing it again!  You can comment directly, or go to our page https://indigenousknowledgenetwork.net/would-you-like-to-write-for-us/

Keep this in mind when you are writing a blog entry. Due to our international audience, will everyone understand the basics of what you are writing about?

We want to be concise. We all have busy lives so posts should be no longer than 1000 words.

We want to stimulate conversations so some of our posts may be opinionated, hopefully without being obnoxious.

We want to hear your voice that is authentic, readable and free of academic jargon.

As a contributor, we want you to promote your post to your social media networks. This means the people who read your post may be your family members, friends, colleagues, students, academics, and clients.

If you are getting stuck on how to write, ask yourself these questions:

Who is your audience?  Is it readable so that they can understand enough to comment and engage with your post?

We welcome and encourage any feedback from our audience!  Once again comment here or go to our page https://indigenousknowledgenetwork.net/would-you-like-to-write-for-us/
