Martin Fenner has launched a science blog indexing service

Are you a science blogger? Do you blog about your science? If so martijn Fenner has just launched a new service that might be interesting for you - the rogue scholar - https://rogue-scholar.org/#features. You point it at your blog feed and it provides full text indexing, assignment of a DOI and preservation. 

I love this idea. The norms of  scholarly communication require things like indexing and DOIs, but managing these things is fiddly and time consuming and needs some prior knowledge. Martins service takes the pain away and is one step in reducing the layer between the formal and slightly less formal routes to communicate your research. 

This is a great idea from a great person, I hope it finds success.
