Bob re: the death of singer Gene Pitney: He was working on A Blog Without Pity when he died…I know this cuz he was always asking if he could borrow my stuff …

DFO: Bob, of course, is joking. Sort of. Reading between the lines, I think he brings up an interesting topic to close the day. Blogging is extremely hard work. Bob and I have been at it for more than two years. I spent the first year on the verge of quitting every morning. (Now, that feeling comes around only late at night when I’m refereeing flame wars.) Two years is an epoch in the blogosphere. You can see that by how few bloggers post every day. If you bloggers don’t mind, would you share here your trials and tribulations in keeping a blog going?
