Interesting Article -- To Me, At Least -- About Bloggers Taking Vacations

First of all, have I mentioned the guest bloggers are doing a great job?

At least until Michael gets drunk and starts posting a bazillion videos in a row.

I'm not actually on vacation. I'm just mentally cloudy, physically weak, and spending two hours a day trying to get a new computer, whether browsing and configuring them or trying to connive some deal to get a discount.

And also-- as my computer overheats after about an hour/90 minutes of use, and becomes slow and unstable, I have to shut it down regularly to let it cool for half an hour. If you notice a lot of typos lately, hey, the keyboard has decided to stop working too. The spacebar is practically gone. Have to slam down on it twice to get a space.

Oh, well. It's not like spaces between words are important.

As for my missing in action night schedule -- I'll tell you. I hate the thought of rebooting this stupid thing. It's nothing but misery.

Anyway, thanks Michael, Dave, Analogue Kid, Retired Geezer, Slublog, Sobek, JackM., and anyone else I've jackassedly not mentioned. And of course cobloggers LauraW and AndrewR. (Tanker and Harry Callahan too, but they seem to have gotten bored with this moronblog.)

The Wall Street Journal discusses blog vacations.

It's a weird thing. The imperative to post frequently sometimes causes me to post virtually all day, from wake-up to conking out at 1 or 2am. And then weekends become blog-important days-- can't post too little on weekends.

And vacations... well, they're hard to swing. They always turn out to be working vacations. Or a "vacation" means taking a weekend off, as I will be mostly doing this weekend.

Not really whining. I chose to do this. But sometimes I end up spending almost all my waking time on this blog. Obviously, that hasn't been the case the past two weeks. But for a while, I was kind of out hand.

Not sure it's healthy.

Via Patterico.
