Lately I’ve turned my hand to writing articles for online sources. I approached Natural Therapy Pages, arguably the largest Natural therapies directory in Australia, about linking to the Acupause study from their article on acupuncture for hot flushes. In return I offered to write several articles on acupuncture for free.
All writing practice is invaluable if you’re a PhD candidate or academic, and I enjoyed the challenges of writing my first article, which was quite different to writing for an academic journal – and more rewarding, in many ways. Within a couple of weeks my article was online, and was shared on Facebook 28 times in 48 hours. The power of social media!
I’m hooked and will be writing more articles, all of which will form some kind of material for my thesis chapters – what a win-win situation. Here’s a link to my very first article on acupuncture and hypnosis for labour pain.
