REGULAR READERS WILL NOT BE SURPRISED TO LEARN I HAVE A VIEW:  Is it okay to use a blog to

  • [relentlessly flog]
  • [gently make readers aware of]

one’s own scholarship, which

  • [will explain everything in greater depth]
  • [entice reputational rents from readers via SSRN downloads under misleading descriptions]
  • [commodify and cheapen one’s scholarly output, rather than turning it into Veblenesque prestige goods]?

You decide!  Well, you could if we allowed comments which, for the record, I’m very glad Glenn doesn’t. (And do check out the link to see the cute little graphic that I decided not to include here.)
