Here’s a Saturday morning open question to the readership:
I’m experiencing some changes in my life that may affect my blogging frequency in the negative direction (but not the quality, of course). I’ve always blogged intermittently – this has always been a labor of love, intellectual stimulation, and public education rather than ego fodder – but I already feel a little frustrated with myself, for example, in being able to address topics you submit or questions you ask via e-mail.
Several others at ScienceBlogs and elsewhere start team blogs or take on additional bloggers with a similar outlook and/or in a similar discipline to add consistency and richness to their own discourse. Other bloggers bring in like-minded colleagues to help ward off blogger burnout.
From a very practical standpoint, my longtime grad student bud Shelley Batts stopped writing Retrospectacle and teamed up with Steve Higgins at Of Two Minds primarily because Shelley is trying to finish her PhD dissertation this year.
Sometimes a blog, even a science blog or a ScienceBlog™, is just a journal for the musings of the author – so, would you find it of value to have an additional voice here?
Any comments or thoughts from readers, bloggers, or reader-bloggers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks – hope you’re having a great weekend.
