#ChemClub Reloaded

#chemclub has been running successfully for a couple of months now. This is all down to the people who take time to contribute regularly, so thank you! I hope it's proven interesting and useful.

I've been thinking about ways to expand #chemclub. The first step is blogs - there are plenty of great writers out there covering individual papers in depth. There's been some discussion about the best way to do this, such as starting a separate hashtag. However, I like simplicity and I don't think the #chemclub feed is so crowded that it can't handle more links, so here's the plan.

If you write or find a blog post discussing a specific chemistry paper, old or new, post it to #chemclub and I'll include it in the regular round-up.

I'm especially looking for context: writers who critically discuss why the work matters and put it into context for those who aren't specialists in that area.

I have a few other ideas fermenting too. If you'd like to get involved, get in touch with me on Twitter or leave a comment below.
