From Rapid Ecology’s About page: 

“Why Rapid Ecology?

Science community blogs are often driving the conversation among ecologists, yet most of us do not have access to publishing in blogs. The visibility of a major blog shouldn’t be a resource limited to a small number of people. If you have something to say, and you’d like other ecologists to hear it, then Rapid Ecology is designed to be a megaphone for you.

Rapid Ecology is here for you — please contribute!

We invite posts written for a general audience that discuss ecology, or professional aspects of being an ecologist, from any student, scholar, or practitioner. A post doesn’t need to be profound, but it also should not be void of substance. Responses to, discussion of, rebuttals to, or amplification of published papers in journals are welcome. You can publish a monthly column if you wish, too.”

See their submission page for lots of specific info on how to submit.
