Science Blogging: Who’s doing it, and why (not) try? – ScienceOnlineSeattle -:

Blogs about science, written by both scientists and science writers, are some of today’s most popular outlets for learning about current scientific research and its relevance to daily life. And blogs are as simple to start as creating an online account. Yet there’s much more to science blogging than sharing the methods of your latest research project, and even veteran science writers have had to learn new skills when they decided to start blogging. What exactly comprises the art and discipline of science blogging? What is the benefit to blogging, for researchers as well as writers? Is the time and effort worth it? This #sciosea event aims to explore these questions with you, as we talk with science bloggers from within and outside academia. Join us and see why science blogging is worth your time!
