Ever thought about starting a blog? Well now you can in our community! To create a blog simply select ‘Blog’ > ‘Create a Blog’ (in the right hand corner). You must fill in all of the required information.
Like creating posts, blogs are an opportunity to express your thoughts and share your stories but with more space to write! Our community loves reading about other users’ interests and experiences, so write as you feel and your blog will get tons of attention
Not sure what to write about? Here’s some tips and blogging ideas:
- Start by introducing yourself. Have you learnt from a lived experience and want to share it with our community?
- Know your audience. The DTL community is a welcoming place and users are excited to read new content. Remember the community is for sharing advice and support about issues concerning young people.
- Make it personal. How do you deal with stress? What do you enjoy doing outside of school/college? Has something inspired you to start a new hobby?

You can choose to start debates with the rest of our community using our poll feature. Similar to creating a post, click on ‘Create New Topic’ and select ‘Poll’ from the drop down box. You must include a Content Title (similar to post-writing), Poll title, question title, and of course, the questions. You have the option to allow users to select multiple choices.
Get creative! What are the random questions you’ve been wanting to ask but didn’t know how to? Or do you fancy starting a debate over your favourite game? The world is your oyster
