Blog Burnout

    March 25, 2005

Robert Scoble is getting a life and giving up his linkblog. Good for Robert. Marc Orchant also …

… is getting a little blog-worn, as is Neville Hobson. And Richard Edelman is taking a blog break.

Even I was only able to get two posts up today. Maybe there’s a trend here. Blogging can lead to success and fame. Couple this with an economy showing life and what do you get? Burnout. No worries. I am still here to keep my blogging pace. Travel, client work and new business pitches do make it challenging, at times.

How would you feel if I took the blogging equivalent of a “mental health day?”
