If you would you like to write for K.I.N., here are some helpful hints for writing blog-style.
Our blog has readers from all over the world including: New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, UK, France, Japan, Norway, Canada, United States and Indonesia. Keep this in mind when you are writing a blog entry. Will everyone understand the basics of what you are writing about?
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’s about sharing and engagement.
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?
