PF Blog, are you in?

If PF started a science blog featuring news bits, commentary/opinions, articles, reviews, interesting links... would people be interesting in reading the blog and or being a blogger for it? For example anything in ZapperZ's journal could be a blog item. Just surveying for interest at this time.

Sounds like it would be interesting. So, it would be one blog that everyone shared, right?

Right, but only staff and appointed members could post.

Okay, so if all you're looking for are people interested in reading, I'll certainly read if it's there. I might even be willing to write an article or two if invited and if there's a topic I could write on that would fit in with what you have in mind for the blog.

It's not so much articles as is ahort commentary, news and opinions. We could really use you in a biology category :smile: For example say you found out something neat or have commentary on a news item, that is something you can post. I suppose alot of what you post in your journals could be blog material for example.

Also for anyone, if your interested in being a blog author please let me know.

If you build it, I will read.

Would bloggers be expected to write on a regular basis or could they just write whenever?

Whenever you want within reason, I think atleast once a week is fair. It doesn't take that much to write a blog item. Alot of what is being written in the journals can be blog items for example. Again if you want to be a blogger let me know asap. The blog should be ready within a day or two.

I didn't know what a 'blog' was until I looked at it, but I like it. Unfortunately, I have very little time to read. ZZ's article fascintated me for a few minutes, and then I had to stop. I'll definitely finish it when I can, and continue to check it out. As for helping out, I'm the opposite of Dex; I can write reasonably well, but don't know anything to write about. Maybe if we get together, we can be one contributor.
