P.S. — Another Blogger Bites The Dust — 3/22/06

Issue: Sagebrush Patriot calls it quits: Cites conflict between blogging and his spiritual work as a Boise area assistant pastor.

DFO: Blogging is hard, scary work, even when you have a background in journalism like mine. It took me quite awhile to get comfortable with the fact that all that stands between you and publication is the "submit" button. When you're blogging at the speed of light, mistakes happen. Occasionally, you make a poor decision re: what you post. Then, there's the refereeing job that comes with a blog like this. It's hard to make the right calls all the time. Blogging isn't for the faint-hearted.

Question: Has blogging or commenting caused you any personal conflicts?
