PinkPsychologist Posted October 23, 2015 Share Posted October 23, 2015 Hi guys,I'm torn between setting up a basic website (wordpress static pages with, maybe, a blog?) and just continuously updating LinkedIn etc? The internet, i.e. other people with blogs, seems to think it is a good idea. However, the reality is that between my department page, the publications and researchgate, all the important stuff is already available online somewhere. I would probably use it to add some background information on projects but again, that is all online. I can recruit participants through twitter and have to use the university server for any online experiments, so linking back to that is not a priority. The few reviews I compose could potentially be published (i.e. not going to waste it on a blog) and new publications go straight on twitter in my case, so....why do PhD students have websites? I don't want to make a fool of myself for getting one but people seem to find it useful, and in a way I can see why having a central place for everything could be handy. Any experiences, advice or a good joke? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
