It was with great regret that I couldn’t attend an Education Media Centre event last week at the University of Durham. I’d been looking forward to it for months, but with the news breaking about the PM’s school asking for donations I was simply unable to go.
Intrepid senior reporter Sophie stepped in and delivered a sterling performance on my behalf.
She travelled with a handout of tips I penned once I knew speaking would be impossible. A few people have since sought them out, so I thought I’d share here in case anyone wants them in the future.
They’re not THE RULES of how to blog, or be picked up by the media, they’re just WHAT HAS WORKED FOR ME AND TEND TO WORK FOR OTHER PEOPLE.
If you have better rules, feel free to add them in the comments.
