Scientists use blogs

Two scientists from the Natural History Museum (NHM) in London are blogging their way across western Australia as they search for meteorites, and it’s a good read.
Museum meteorite curator Caroline Smith and meteorite researcher Gretchen Benedix arrived in Australia on September 26, and arming themselves with supplies set out on October 11 into the Nullarbor Desert, where they expect to find plenty of meteorites. They're keeping an online diary on the NHM website which you can read at piclib.nhm.ac.uk/meteorite-blog

Here is an idea. If you want to promote an long running enendeavour. have a blog to act both as a diary and to attract a niche audience.

Another Blog application to put in the library of Social Media experiences.
