At BlogSoc, we are a friendly group who run websites / blogs / YouTube channels, all on various subjects and interests.
Our weekly workshops are an opportunity for us all to get together and work on our sites, as well as helping each other to make them better and having a chat. The perk to joining the society is to get your blog out there into the student community and to get it promoted by our official WordPress site,. We hope to create a community of bloggers in UEA.
As well as running regular workshops, we are also very social with regular events and we often head to the SU Bar after our workshops. We even have some social evenings out and last year, this included events such as a bowling social. There are also frequent competitions such as Blogging Marathons and 'Post of the Week'.
We have our own website (https://ueabloggingsociety.com) which has become the hub for student blogs at UEA and our own Twitter profile (@UEABlogSoc).
We have seen great success in our members, some of whom have seen themselves get thousands of views and gained audiences the likes of which they never expected. We want to keep the momentum going and make your blog not only a valued part of our society but even better than you could have ever imagined.
Finally, there is an obvious employability aspect to this society with the content you create and blogs/websites/channels will look great on any future job applications, bolstered by the added support you will receive from us as a society.
To summarise, we are mainly about having fun and working and improving on our blogs. If you are a seasoned blogger or a beginner, you can rest assured that this is the society for you.
