UK Foreign Office blogs

Media, PR

The UK Foreign Office has a network of blogs that provides a place for officials and ministers to engage in a direct and informal dialogue with public audiences on themes related to international affairs and the work of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, according to institution’s site.

According to the webpage, the institution wants the blogs “to be personal, real time, integrated with other things we’re doing, responsive to commments, and written for particular (sometime niche) audiences. But there’s no right or wrong way to blog, and you’ll see that our bloggers take different approaches”.

The website mentions that all the blogs are “personal and attributed – they are all written by the named authors”, some written by ministers, some by ambassadors, some by staff on particular themes. Also, some of the blogs are written in English, but some of bloggers write in local languages from the countries they live in.
