Monica blogs about pertinent current issues and isn't afraid to address controversial subject matter. She acknowledges the potential merit of alternative viewpoints and always reminds her readers of the importance of evidence-based research - I love how she is both open-minded and provides healthy criticism on so many issues. She also facilitates the 'Comments' area on her blog, so as to allow her readers to have engaging discussion but also ensure that they are backing up their claims.
