Hyperblogism

Bloggers Suffer Burnout

Excerpt:

Blogging for some is an obvious labor of love, and having a forum that belongs to them and enables them to write whatever they want, and have it seen by throngs of readers, is a very attractive proposition. This is especially true because blogging is a timeless endeavor and one that allows authors to vent about whatever's on their minds.

For Glenn Reynolds, a professor at the University of Tennessee and the author of InstaPundit, one of the most widely read conservative blogs, the best thing about blogging is interacting with his readers.

"There are a lot of smart people everywhere," he said, "and I think it's easy for people who work at universities, where there are supposed to be a lot of smart people, to forget that there are a lot of other smart people out there in all walks of life."

But having such a forum can quickly become a demanding habit.
