After 20 minutes of staring out the window, I googled 'how to write a blog' out of sheer desperation. It tells me that I have to captivate the reader right from the first sentence (check); I need to make it emotional (check); I need to address the readers' problems... really?

Instead I'll just write about the latest developments in STEM, education and Manchester that interest me. 

I assume this will solve all your problems, dear reader.
