This post was originally written for Your Data Stories project blog. YourDataStories is a European research project which envisions to combine and fuse the two “suppliers” of open data (traditional producers and user-generated content) and to exploit the added value from this amalgamation in order to better satisfy the needs of the “demand side” – meaning citizens, journalists and others.
YourDataStories is all about enabling everyone – citizens, journalists, and other professionals – to create their own data stories. One might ask him or herself, why not setting up an own Data blog? Such can be for private amusement, serve as a portfolio for students and professionals, or simply function as a data blog directly associated with a company. This post sets up a guideline that leads you through the process of launching your own data blog.
