    I might be interested in starting one.

    I'm aware of that, but what I meant was like... how do I post?

    There is a link to register yourself on the right (you have to scroll down a bit). I think that's how you start.

    Yeah register and then let me know and I'll promote you to writer.

    Can you remind us what kind of content you would like to see in the Blog? Kind of the best of PF? Or just commentary on news items? Mainly physics or any of the sciences? (engineering too?) (critical thinking/skepticism?)

    the "about" link on the Blog is empty.

    Also, what kind of traffic has the Blog been getting? Just curious.

    I'm going to make a thread about the blog and physics post in a sec.

    I plan on mainly focusing on Mathematics and the neat things that come with it and also the my school experiences, so that people may learn from that.

    Google "physics blog". I'm not sure if my search results are customized for me, but it's the #1 hit for that search phrase.

    Currently, the blog is virtually a one-man-show run by Robphy. Typical numbers of views for each entry are in the 2000-3000 range.

    Robphy dominates the blog. He certainly deserves recognition for that because he helped make that the #1 search link.

    I agree. It takes a lot of sustained effort to do that, and it's about that time we acknowledge robphy's work. So well done!

    Thanks for the acknowledgments.
    I'm glad that someone reads the entries... since, at times, I wonder if anyone does.:blushing:

    Of course, it would be great to have other writers!
    (I hate to see a month go by with no entries...
    and it would certainly be nice to have more frequent entries... from a variety of people!)

    Where is the post blog button?

    Do I type it out on word then send it to you?

    I have a hard time finding a login link itself!

    Wow, that is really cool—I had no idea physicsforums had the number one physics blog spot on Google. Now that I read it, the quality is superb. With more writers, we need to have daily updates!
