I started my internship at the DH Commons in spring 2020 when the DH Commons web presence was not yet fully configured. Together with the other inaugural DH Commons fellow Tess Dejaeghere, I helped the Keeper of the Commons, Merisa Martinez, to set up this web presence. Tess and I were both writing our theses linked to this internship and were doing corpus research of Digital Humanities Centre (DHC) websites so we could make recommendations for the Commons based on our research. While Tess focussed on how these DHCs highlighted their DH projects online, I studied why DHC blogs should be considered as valid forms of scholarly communication. I also suggested we should create such a blog for the Commons, and this is how the DH Commons blog was born.
