The paper sheds light on some of the hazards and virtues of blogging in the area of international law as well as the common misunderstandings at the heart of the objections still raised against legal blogging. In doing so, the paper argues that bloggership should remain distinct from legal scholarship and formulates some safeguards for a useful bloggership in the contemporary international legal scholarship.
