Bloggers and vacation. A quandry
August 30th, 2006

Interesting insight from the WSJ who quotes some of the most well known bloggers whose livelihood depends on their blog updates, on how stepping away from the keyboard is a tough decision.

Unlike other jobs, where co-workers can fill in for an absent employee, blogs are usually a one-person show. A blogger’s personality carries the site. When the host isn’t there, readers tend to stray.

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.
