Can I submit a blog entry to an academic journal?
I'm thinking of writing a paper on Wittgenstein and my goal is to get the paper published in a peer reviewed journal of Philosophy. I also have a blog about Wittgenstein so I was thinking of posting each section of the paper on the blog as I write it. If I do this, will I still be able to submit the paper to academic journals? I'm asking because I know that academic journals don't accept papers that have been published elsewhere. I'm just not sure if appearing on a blog counts as being "published elsewhere."

I think that when you post to blogs, it automatically becomes public and it may be difficult to justify that your paper has not been "published elsewhere" when it is readily viewed on a blog. But then again, I also think that posting to a blog does not count as being  "published elsewhere." because it's not printed.
