Death by Blogging?

It's 1:40 in the morning. I am sitting here visiting other blogs when I should be in bed. Actually, I SHOULD be putting blog posts up for the authors I represent or at least put their tour pages up. Or, I SHOULD be looking for bloggers to host my authors coming up next month. Or, I SHOULD...
Instead, I'm playing.

I think I have blogged about this before, but blogging in my own blog about my own life is my relaxation. So...with that said...I was over on Sandi Kahn Shelton's blog tonight and she posted a link to an article in the New York Times about these guys who were dying because they virtually blogged themselves to death.

To be fair to the deceased, I am presuming they were "professional" bloggers which means they get paid for content. Not sure about this, but if it's not that, then I would presume they became quite fanatic about blogging to the point where they did it 24/7. I can't figure out how else. Maybe it was just their time and maybe they just happened to be bloggers. I mean, come on now...who doesn't blog? My whole business is based on blogging but I don't see myself keeling over because of it.

Wait a minute, though. Do I go to bed when I'm sleepy and about to keel over from exhaustion or do I lean back, catch a couple winks, then finish the blog post I had to have done before the morning? Do I stress at my offline job because of a particularly stressful online day?

Do I kick myself in the head because I took on too many authors than I could possibly handle in a month all for the sake of well...you're not supposed to know I like the financial benefits so I won't mention it.

Well, yes, I can see where blogging can be stressful.

On the other hand, not paying bills can be quite stressful, so blogging wins hands down in my book.

I love the Internet. I love NY Times. They always find something for me to blog about. ;o)
