Write for the PDC Blog

June 16, 2015

With the new PDC website, PDC now has its own blog, The PDC Link,  as a forum to share ideas and thoughts related to the legal PDC community.

If you are a regular blogger or have never written one, you are invited to write for the PDC.  And this opportunity is an open invitation.  We want fresh content so anytime you are inspired to write, we want to hear from you.  So if you are in the middle of a training session and you think of a topic, write it.  Or perhaps you are on vacation and something about your adventure translates to PD, write it.

Question and Answer

What is a blog?

A blog is a frequently updated online journal.  It is a place to share your thoughts and your passions.  Blog is a short form for the word weblog and the two words are used interchangeably.

What should I write about?

  • What am I passionate about?
    You need to LOVE what you write about. Try to pick topics that you really like talking about. Blogging should never feel like a chore; your readers will know if you don’t really care.
  • What am I an expert in? 
    Know a lot about a specific field? Been in an industry for a long time? Chances are, you’ve got a lot of knowledge to share that others would find interesting.

How long should my blog post be?

The best length for a blog post is however many words it takes you to get your message across and make it clearly understood, but try keep blog posts about 800 to 1,200 words long.  And don’t worry; the PDC staff will give it a good edit before posting.

When do you want a blog?

Anytime!  Don’t wait to be asked.  If something inspires you, write about it.  It doesn’t have to be specifically about PDC.  We want blogs that will educate and entertain.

What happens to my blog?

After the staff prepares minor edits, it will be posted on the PDC blog and then pushed out through the PDC’s new social media tools.

How often will the PDC blog change?

We hope to have a new blog post about every three weeks as we want to stay current.  So we really need your help.

Who do you want to write blogs?

PDC members, volunteers, staff and anyone else who is interested.  The most important thing – just start!  Part of the adventure of blogging is that you don’t need to have it all figured out.
