Crosspost: Hey Scientists, Why Not Blog?

Just wanted to post a quick note that I wrote a post called Hey Scientists, Why Not Blog? over at the CogBlog.

I’m not a scientist, so I can’t relate to this problem. I do know, however, that web development is a very competitive field as well. In web development, blogging gives you an edge. Taking part in (or even hosting) a global conversation about your field gets your name out there. For web developers, this can lead to key jobs, book deals, or even sponsorships. Wouldn’t these benefits appeal to scientists?
