The Blog Nightmare

As a new blogger myself, I found Joel Achenbach’s article, "The Tail That Wags the Blog," from yesterday’s Washington Post very interesting. Here’s a sampling:

I constantly tell myself: Ignore the blog. Do your work. You are an enormous literary figure and cultural icon, not a mere "blogger." You must produce high-end journalism with grand themes and huge groaning multi-syllabic words like "eschatological," and you can’t be dribbling away all your ideas on the blog. Be strong! Resist the blog!
