Blogging opportunities seem to proliferate these days. The New York Times has addressed
some of the downsides to blogging. It is like panning for gold and creating health problems for some. If, that is, you are going after big money. As this writer points out,
blogging is a devotion for most, 99.9% of whom have a job or other source of income.
My take on these articles is: Use blogging, don't let it use you. Blog because you are devoted to a subject of interest or use it to make a bit of money and have something for editors to look at. Don't let it drive you to an early grave.
