Launched by Stroke in January 2013, Blogging Stroke highlights high-impact studies published in the journal. In addition to article summaries, Blogging Stroke includes interviews with authors of recently published Stroke articles and keeps a pulse on the latest happenings in the stroke field through coverage of conferences, including the European Stroke Organisation Conference and the International Stroke Conference. Blog posts are written primarily by a group of stroke fellows and other early career researchers, and thus the blog fosters the involvement of the younger members of the stroke community with the journal and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.

Blogging Stroke is an interactive forum for an online community of people interested in cerebrovascular disease, and we invite readers to comment on blog posts. We hope that the posts and responses will help clinicians take care of patients and researchers think of new projects. Through the blog, we want to engage current Stroke readers, as well as medical students, residents, and fellows interested in cerebrovascular disease; in other words, the future leaders of the field of stroke.

Stroke fellows and early career researchers who are interested in becoming Blogging Stroke contributors may contact Erinn Cain, Stroke Assistant Managing Editor, at ecain@strokeahajournal.org.
