‘On hiatus for a few months’:
Following in the footsteps of John Ellis, Andrew Sullivan
is also taking a hiatus from blogging. ... I think Reader No. 1 is right
: we’re at the end of the blogging beginning and something else is emerging. ... I’m looking forward to Andrew returning with a revamped site. Hopefully he’ll help take blogging in a new direction and/or heights. ... Hub Blog is bravely sticking it out! This is a hobby for me, so it’s not a burden. I like it. When I’m not in the mood, I don’t blog. Simple. I don’t quite understand the pressure some, like John and Andrew, apparently put on themselves to produce. Any observations, Sherman? ...
I do hope certain backbone bloggers stick it out. Locally, there’s Adam Gaffin
, who’s built a terrific Hub central blog and is now thinking of major changes, for the positive I assume. (I’ve voted to keep Boston Common, FYI. See cyber ballots at the left.) .... Nationally, there’s Glenn Reynolds
, who’s dared to annoy me in recent months, but who constantly startles me. Did you see his post yesterday on neo-Confederates
? That’s been an unwritten pet peeve of mine for a while. I’ve been giving the issue some thought and was looking for an opportunity to write about it. And Glenn just rips out an unbelievably great item on the issue. How does he do it? Hope he sticks it out too. ...
