Issue: Burnout a sign that blog boom bogging down/Frank Sennett, Spokesman-Review
More Info: In print journalism, syndicated columnists offer the closest parallel to solo blog stars. But while columnists might file a couple of pieces a week and enjoy typical white-collar vacation schedules without harming their careers, top bloggers can see their traffic slip after taking even a few days off. Worn down by that constant need for feed, many long-timers are taking a long look at different creative outlets.
DFO: I know whereof Frank speaks. Blogging is one of the hardest disciplines I've known.
Question: Do you believe blogs have a long-term future in the media scene? Or will the constant pressure to blog and burnout reduce blogging to a short-term sensation?
