One measure of the growing importance of blogs in scientific/medical communication is that the US National Library of Medicine has now provided guidance on how to cite a blog entry in an academic paper.

All the research I have seen recently suggests that the number of scientists regularly reading scientific blogs is a very small proportion (certainly under 10% in most fields), and the proportion actively blogging is lower still, but there’s no doubt the trend is upwards.
