There are many different styles of blogs out there, but for this competition your blog should be:

  • Well written and engaging with a consistent tone of voice that is both informative and light
  • Thoughtful and thought-provoking
  • Written from a fresh and interesting point of view that adds something novel to the debate
  • Contain tips for customers and/or businesses to work with – sometimes these debates can seem rather bleak and unsolvable, so it is important to suggest viable solutions
  • Include consideration about design/aesthetics
  • And finally, it should be well informed/surveyed and referenced
