Web presence for PhDs/academics

At the start of this academic year (Sept 2013) I was asked to help out with introducing new PhD students to developing a web presence. To do this I wrote a presentation with Kit Carruthers and Andrew Tedstone. I’m currently on an NCAS/NERC course and there has been some general chat regarding developing a web presence. So below you can see my presentation (without the Edinburgh GeoSciences specific references).

I find the process really worthwhile, particularly blogging: it helps develop writing skills and allows you to ‘complete’ work that wouldn’t end up in a journal.

So I hope you find the following useful!
