My how things have changed. We’ve gone from MSM’s utter dismissal of blogging as a phenomenon to a WSJ story (reg. req.) whose sub-head is “Bloggers Struggle With What to Do About Vacation”.
In the height of summer-holiday season, bloggers face the inevitable question: to blog on break or put the blog on a break? Fearing a decline in readership, some writers opt not to take vacations. Others keep posting while on location, to the chagrin of their families. Those brave enough to detach themselves from their keyboards for a few days must choose between leaving the site dormant or having someone blog-sit.
