Darren Garnick of The Boston Herald’s “Working Stiff” blog interviewed me and Alan for a story about “Blogger Burnout.” Unfortunately, only my answers were used, so Alan…if you want to post your answers in a separate post, please do so.
Anyway, here’s my answer about the perils of blogging…
AFRAID OF BURNOUT? Nope.
â€œBlogging is like anything else you get some type of rise out of, you have to do it in moderation.â€
â€œSo people who stay up all hours of the night trying to be the first to write about something arenâ€™t just doing themselves a physical and mental disservice, I also think theyâ€™re unintentionally doing blogging a disservice.â€
And on the rewards of blogging…
BLOGGING REWARDS: â€œHonestly, everyday brings a new reason why itâ€™s worth it. And sure, thereâ€™s stress and pressure, but Iâ€™ve usually found that creative endeavors carry with them a certain amount of that. Since I make my living as a creative writer Iâ€™ve become accustomed to that type of atmosphere. I guess you could say itâ€™s almost a lifestyle choice at this point because if I didnâ€™t love it, I wouldnâ€™t do it.â€
