Before You Post Your Blog

Write a rough draft of your message. Here are some tips:

Title your blog post with the name of your NASN session.

Write your blog post to be between 200 and 400 words.

Include the date and time of your session in your blog post.

Use easy-to-read text and language; reading online should be somewhat effortless.

Organize your message into short paragraphs.

Write in first-person so the message is yours.

Include links to additional resources, definitions, and/or citations instead of inserting footnotes.

Review your NASN website profile.

Add or update your profile photo.

Add or update your bio.

Make your photo and bio visible to the public by editing your privacy settings (go here, find My Profile Settings, and choose Privacy-Visibility Settings).

Reach out to NASN's meeting planner for blogging permissions.

Your NASN account must include the blogger role before the instructions below can be completed.
