Just wanna mention that there's an amazing literature on blogging as a, or an aspect of the, scholarly vocation. I know of it but I haven't read it. For me, the most relevant aspect would be how standards of evidence and citation have evolved, and where they stand. E.g., is there an authoritative "best practice" of a blog post citing another blog post in MLA, Turabian, and/or other standard? It may be time to get serious with this to start plugging into some pretty amazing web-of-knowledge kinds of possibilities.
