In this article, we will get back on almost six years of experience, on a scholar blog. We get back on the initial motivations for starting an academic blog, and I will try to explain what makes the blog even more active, almost six years after, for an editor. We will also discuss interactions with microblogging - Twitter - activities. More than a summary of a personal experience, we will see how academic blogs can be seen as a missing link, between the conversional style of conferences and seminars and the rigid written style of academic articles, or between the jargon based style of academic articles, and the overselled style of newspaper summaries.
