For Some, the Blogging Never Stops

Perhaps a chronically small audience is a blessing. For it seems that the more popular a blog becomes, the more some bloggers feel the need to post.

Katie Hafner’s writes this in an quintessential article on complusive bloggers and their lives. Her two page article based on her interview with various compulsive / non-compulsive bloggers, sometimes indirectly questions the need of blogging as she writes :

Where some frequent bloggers might label themselves merely ardent, Mr. Pierce is more realistic. “I wouldn’t call it dedicated, I would call it a problem,” he said. “If this were beer, I’d be an alcoholic.”

It’s well researched, well thought about article. Very genuine. If you are compulsive blogger you know why I saw this. Read it here at NY Times. You need a free userid /password to login to NY Times. Get one if you don’t have, for this same article will be quoted in many blogs, in the days to come.

PS: Thanks Anand for the tip. Here is the url for this article that I got through google news.

  1. Here’s a fix: search for the article on and it lets you read it without having to log in. It’s tagged with a separate partner name in the URL which does not take you to the registration page.

    Also, NY Times articles are frequently reprinted in smaller dailies, which are available online for free and searchable through a news bot.

    Hope that helps.
