Kauffman forum video: Blogging and your economics career
I was unfortunately unable to attend the Kauffman Economics Bloggers' Forum this year. In lieu of a personal appearance, Brad DeLong asked me to do a quick video on the topic of how blogging might affect one's career in economics. So here is that video. It's a topic I've covered before, so not a ton of new stuff here if you're a regular reader. But with the video version, you get to see my office bookshelf! Awesome!
(Note: I now realize that this video makes it sound as if Justin Wolfers started blogging after me, when actually, he was blogging before I was.)
Update: As some people have pointed out, this video contains a mistake. I say that I spend "1 to 1.5 hours a week" blogging. I totally misspoke. I spend 1 to 1.5 hours per post. At 2-3 posts a week, that's 2 to 5 hours per week. Thanks to the people who caught that...
Anyway, for much much more on the Kauffman forum, visit Brad DeLong's blog.
