Article by McKenzie,D. and Berk, O. (2011) "The impact of economics blogs", showing  the positive effects of interesting Blogs written by economists. They state:
"First, links from bLOGS cause a striking increase in the number of abstract views and downloads of economics papers. Second, blogging raises the profile of the blogger ... Finally, we find that a blog can transform attitudes about some of the topics it covers. The article is available at Ideas.Repec: https://ideas.repec.org/p/wbk/wbrwps/5783.html
