Universitetsläraren, the journal of the Swedish Association of University Teachers, has an article about blogging scientists in issue 2010:9 on the occasion of an upcoming PhD thesis in Lund about the subject. Scienceblogs.com is mentioned and Åsa of Ting & Tankar is interviewed.
Blogging didn’t steal energy from her thesis work during grad school, says Åsa. On the contrary, “At first I didn’t even expect anyone to read the blog. It was my safety valve while I finished my thesis. Writing it was like running once around the house to get some fresh air.”
