The Stresses of Blogging
In what is becoming a trend, Sunday's New York Times featured yet another article on blogging. As noted in a post on the class blog, the article is about the pressures of blogging and the resulting negative health effects. The story has been picked up by a number of other news outlets, including the Daily Mail, the Telegraph, and Wired. Notably, the main stream British papers have gone with the "death by blogging" angle, reporting that the death of two prominent American bloggers has been linked to the stress of updating their blogs. By contrast, the tech oriented site VNU takes the more moderate view that blogging can have harmful effects.
