How to increase the visibility of your work: blogging
Workshop for PhD Students
Why blogging is a good strategy?
Managing a blog takes time and energy and requires discipline, but it is worth the pain
Besides, the style you can use in a blog is more diverse and better reflects your personality than a standardized paper would do. You also can write things in a blog that would be considered as irrelevant in a publication.
A publication is a very short form of scientific communication, you cannot spent too much place to talk about the critical steps of your research, while you can develop all these aspects on a blog post. This is another proof that you have taken care of every step of the path followed from the original idea till the publication of the results.
