Yesterday, Jeremy Fox posted a rather lengthy blog on why academics should read blogs. I’m going to convince the neophyte academic, the graduate student, why you especially should be reading blogs, and commenting too.
I will skip topics like “What is a blog?” and “What do blogs cover?” because Jeremy and his team at Dynamic Ecology have done an excellent job compiling the answers to these questions.
So, why should students read blogs? I’ll keep it simple: connection.
