I have an intuition, backed up by absolutely no evidence, that my particular area of interest (evolutionary genetics) has more faculty blogging about stuff related to their research than other fields. This is most likely the result of my interest in those blogs, and, hence, my increased awareness of them compared to blogs of faculty in other research areas. From a quick scan of my blogroll and the feeds I subscribe to, here’s a list of research faculty who blog about evolutionary genetics:
That’s not a lot of blogs, but it’s also not a huge field. How does that compare with faculty who blog in your research area?
Note: I’ve restricted the list to faculty who can be considered PIs of an active research lab. You can argue all you like about whether such a list should be restricted to this group, but that’s the group I’m interested in. I’m also not looking at totally anonymous bloggers because, well, we don’t know who they are. Also, I’m most interested in faculty blogging about stuff related to their research.
