As part of our work on Mind Waves, Third Sector Lab’s @rosiehopes was asked to deliver a session on blogging at Glasgow Women’s Library.

The workshop participants were totally new to blogging, so rather than getting bogged down with technical stuff, we focussed on top tips from other novice bloggers. This presentation is essentially crowd-sourced from Mind Waves Community Correspondents, most of whom have lived experience of mental health problems.
