Blog depression


Attention: maybe you are be suffering of Blog Depression! The nonist made a useful and hilarious 6 page pamphlet meant as a public service to help educate bloggers about this growing problem. You can download the complete PDF manual What Everyone Should know About Blog Depression too. Some of my favourite parts:

    Great links, Bibi! Thanks for the heads-up. Anyone who blogs (and suffers at all because of it) should read those.
    My hat’s particularly off to you link meta-bloggers out there. Man, that’s just way too much daily pressure and work for me! Hehe. I just blog single very-specific subjects or themes that I’m into (“blog for yourself”), so I avoid that daily meta-blogging/link aggregate type of pressure. Works well for me. I have none of those worries and so I don’t get burned out and stressed out. 🙂
    PS: Thanks SOOO much for your posts on that “Getting Things Done” book and procrastination! I got the book (didn’t procrastinate, yaay!) am reading it now, and it looks like it’s really going to help me out a lot! Thanks a bunch! 🙂

    I had some issues with the comments yesterday as well. Or maybe it was my blog depression that short circuited the system… We will never now.
    Its a hilarious link!
    the description is great:
    It’s a natural reaction to the self induced and largely imaginary pressures of blogging.
    hahahaha couldn’t stop laughing.
    great find
