Are there scholars who blogs independently their thoughts not over papers? If so, which platform do they use?

    See this and this. For what it's worth, as-is, this appears to me as a very simple question, with a shopping question tacked on to boot (what platform to use). Not sure this question is currently a good fit for the site.

  • You might want to go to scholar,google.com, and I think you'll find that if someone really want to be taken seriously, they're going to try and publish in respected journals and not a blog.

    @Hank, a lot of "serious" Journals have a blog and even a twitter account.

    The answers are: A) Yes, and, B) pretty much any platform they want that makes life easy. The most-respected scholars I know of who blog regularly are probably Terry Tao and Timothy Gowers - both Fields Medalists (one of the highest awards a mathematician can receive). This completes the existence proof.

    @0x90, yes many 'serious' Journals have a blog, but that wasn't the question. The question was scholars who blog 'independently'. My feeling is that if you are a scholar who wants to be taken seriously, then publishing on your own blog does not have the same impact as if you publish in a respected journal
