academiPad's insight:

Anoter good reason for academics to blog: If a small charity can trade its blog up into national news coverage, what can you do with your research? As an academic you have influence, first and foremost among your peers and in the classroom. Think about how you can shape the world if you extend your influence into the world through social media?

Why grad schools should require students to blog | Literally Psyched, Scientific American Blog Network

academiPad's insight:

Maria presents very strong arguments in this post for why blogging is a very important part of academic life, something that should start in grad school. It helps you practice your writing, develop and research ideas that span disciplinary boundaries, and helps you to clearly explain your research ideas. If one idea is missing in this wonderful writing is that blogging also helps you to brand yourself as a researcer. I am convinced that, sometime in the near future, your "social impact" will be a small but growing decision criterion for hiring, renewal and tenure decisions alongside the traditional research, teaching and service.
