Take a Blogiday?

:: Dave Weinberger, author of Small Pieces Loosely Joined, has suggested that we take a break from blogging during the first two weeks of August. Do you agree? Discuss.

Am I the only blogperson growing blogtired of the blogixon of words with prefixes beginning with or suffixes ending with a version of the word “blog”?

    That would assume the lesser known bloggers wouldn’t take a holiday also (I guess there are their archives to look at). As for blog words, it does get weary after a while. That might work better if the blogger chose two weeks at random and recommended blogs to read in their absence.

    I think Weinberger is referring to all bloggers. However, one comment he received from Brian Dear suggests that if the “blogerati” take a break, other blogs might shine for a short period of time.

    I like your suggestion. Something like, “OK, I won’t be blogging from Oct 15-29, but in the meantime, here are a few suggested blogs for you to check in the meantime.”

    I’ll be blog free from August 12 – September 2, unless I hit a computer and some free time on my travels. The link idea is a good one.

    Some people spend way too much time thinking about blogs. There is nothing more boring than writers writing about writing, or bloggers talking about blogs.

    Keith is right. It can get very tedious when the discussion is about blogging for blogging’s sake. It’s different when the discussion is application of the program for learning, info dissemination, etc.
