Dilbert’s creator has been a regular blogger, contributing frequently to his site to the delight of his fans, but there will be less delight coming from Adams in the future.

Scott Adams Easing Back On Blogging

I have to admit that as a feed subscriber to the The Dilbert Blog, I’m one of the people who has helped Adams reach a "trivial" level of income from his blog’s ads. As he’s a successful cartoonist, author, speaker, and restaurateur, and I’ve bought several of his books, I’m not going to lose any sleep over that.

Neither is Scott Adams, who plans to ease off the blog accelerator. He told readers in a blog post that after posting almost daily for a couple of years, Adams plans to do less blogging.

"I found that if I wrote nine highly popular posts, and one that a reader disagreed with, the reaction was inevitably ‘I can never read Dilbert again because of what you wrote in that one post.’ Every blog post reduced my income, even if 90% of the readers loved it," he noted as one of the reasons for the demotivation to blog.

There will be less controversy as well, Adams promised. He touched a few nerves with his opinions on religion, free will, Iraq, and other topics. "A startling number of readers couldn’t tell when I was serious or kidding, so most of the negative reactions were based on misperceptions," he wrote.

On behalf of all the other moist robots who read the Dilbert Blog regularly, I’ll miss the daily fix of his opinions, theories, and Dilbert comic punch lines that were too hot for newspaper editors to print.
