To whom much has been given

The title of this History Punk post is about how blogging can support the academic reputations of scholars.

But it’s also about more than that and not so self-serving. I especially appreciate the suggestion that blogging can also be seen as part of the responsibility of scholars. We’ve been given much, and it’s our duty to give some that back. In this sense, extending the readership of our blogs or traditional work using Twitter isn’t just a way to support our careers.

What better way to apply our unique talents and privileges than to give the world a little more light?
