Teaching How to Write a Blog
The emergence of new media tools such as social networking websites, blogs etc. have brought a complete overhaul in the way organizations and individuals used to communicate. Recognizing these new media platforms as a potential communication tool of the present and the future, the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom’s (FNF) Pakistan office and our partner, Policy Research Institute of Market Economy (PRIME) organized a workshop on “Effective Writing and Blogging” in Karachi, Pakistan.
The participants included 25 students and teachers from various universities of Karachi. At the workshop, the participants learnt the basic aspects of blogging and, at the same time, gained practical tips for more efficient and effective blogging. The discussions revolved around how to structure a blog, methods to increase its outreach while parallely engaging the audience. Giving a helping hand to the participants were experienced bloggers Kamal Siddiqi and Shabbir Kazmi.
“We believe social media is one of the best tools for instant interaction with partners and friends provided it is responsible and effective”, said FNF Pakistan, Country Representative, Dr. Almut Besold.
