This morning’s Age has two pieces on academics and blogging; one starts out as a story of a scuffle between Monash and Melbourne Universities over the ‘Melbourne Model’ (Click here) but ends up discussing Edublog, a proprietary blog platform (Click here). The other piece is a nifty list of ‘academic bloggers’ on a variety of topics (Click here), including one I like, Dr Samantha Thomas’ Discourse (Click here).
The Age inexplicably overlooked Amicae Curiae, and the Castan Centre’s Human Rights Blog (Click here).

One of my newfound favorite academic (non-law) blogs is the Thesis Whisperer (Click here). Another is Julie Posetti’s J-Scribe (Click here), although she posts more regularly via twitter (@julieposetti). On law I regularly check Peter Black’s Freedom to Differ (Click here) and Feminist Law Professors (Click here). A new one on legal education is the Pleagle Trainer Blog (Click here)
Have you found any blogs by academics, whether in law or otherwise that you regularly check in to?
Or are you an academic with a blog on your work area? Have you found it assisted your work and writing? Does your faculty recognise your blog work? (I suspect I have had more readers of blog posts than I have via journal articles, but luckily there is no way to measure how many hard copy readers one has!) Wait! I just had a thought; should scholarly bloggers be called sloggers? Leave us your comments here.
