Blogging Economists

Some very well known economists wrote blogs, as this story discusses. I can identify with many of the reasons they give, but mostly this is an experiment. In economics, "learning by doing" is an important way to develop expertise. What better way to think about writing for a diverse audience about economics than actually doing it! Like Drezner, I plan to do this for about a year. Maybe also like Drezner, I'll still be doing it in five years! Is that a violation of "rational expectations?"
