Why Be a SCAN contributor?

We all have different hobbies.  We might read, exercise, or cook.  Others may travel...while some have an itch to write or blog.

What are the benefits of blogging for RDNs (or students)?

  • You'll become a better writer.  Dream of a career in public health or owning your own business?  You'll need communication skills as a foundation. This leads to...
  • You might just become a better thinker and learn more.  Always wanted to tackle a tough subject?  Blogging gives you an opportunity to learn and share that with others. You may succeed, you might fail.  But you'll learn about yourself in the process. 
  • You'll meet some new people.  Networking easily fits into social media by providing others with a glimpse of you on the internet.  
  • Promote your area of expertise.  Do you have a passion to share?  Identify yourself as the expert.

Why blog for SCAN?
  • Increase your online presence from a respected nutrition website.
  • Shameless self-promotion! SCAN reaches a large audience of people from wellness professionals, health professionals, and regular people. 
  • There's no contract or deadlines.
  • If you already have a blog and want to increase your exposure, you're welcome to 'recycle' previous posts.
