The Whisperer is a big fan of PhD student blogging. We want to promote it as a way of doing scholarship.
All of the blogs in the list below have been started by PhD students. Some have continued to blog after they finished. We applaud all of them for being brave enough to share their journey with the world.
We hope you find these useful as potential models if you decide you want to blog your way through a PhD.
Some PhD students offer advice on writing and doing a PhD on their blogs. A lot of this advice is good and useful, but you should always bear in mind that all advice – including advice on this blog – needs to be assessed critically.
Listing a blog here does not imply we endorse the advice being offered. Not all advice will be relevant to your needs and situation. Different countries have different systems of examination. Different disciplines have different expectations of writing. If in doubt, check with your supervisor or a trusted mentor before applying advice you read on the internet.
If you are a PhD student with a blog we would be happy to add you to the list, just email the editor.
