How To Start an Academic Blog

How To Start an Academic Blog July 26, 2013

Joshua Mann has written a blog post about how to start an academic blog, gearing up for a presentation on the topic for SBL in November. When I saw the title, it reminded me of the classic cartoon about how become a famous blogger.

He has also posted a discussion with Ben Witherington on academic blogging.

Brian LePort also linked to Joshua’s post as well as a couple by David Williams.
