What constitutes research blogging?

Mathemagenic discusses research blogging and she found, based on her experience, that research blogging covers the following tasks:
  • publishing / dissemination / announcements (of papers, presentations, events by me and others)
  • research process
    • reflections
    • emotions
  • event blogging
    • notes
    • reflections
    • event planning (including travel planning)
  • paper blogging (notes on papers I read)
  • asking for help (explicit)
  • “enculturation” into research (reflection/learning on research culture, practices, tricks of the trade, etc.)
  • articulation
    • articulation of personal experiences (relevant for PhD)
    • articulation of problems/questions (may be implicit call for help, but often just thinking aloud)
  • writing-related (this is the difficult one)
    • drafting/testing pieces that supposed to go into a paper
    • giving space to pieces that do not fit into a paper
  • reflections on methodology

  1. Daniel, that’s what happens when you put yourself out there for all sundry to see. I’m sure that you and Lilia have many more conversations as a result. Ain’t bloging great. BTW, I will be in Montreal in a few weeks, so maybe we can get together for a chat/coffee/beer/etc.
