Geodog notes the inverse relationship between blogging and work

Quoting from Geodog: Work is the curse of the blogging class:

I suspect that historians looking back at the rise of blogging will see the tech depression of 2001-2004 as a critical factor in getting blogging started. The stage was set by the 1996-2001 internet boom where content had been hailed as king, and by Gore v. Bush and 9/11, which reminded people that politics really did matter….

In his comments, Anil argues that “some of us” are blogging more than ever, but is Anil updating his personal blog much? Blogging a lot a Six Apart is a different sort of thing entirely, and actually fits Tim’s thesis (that commerce is changing what’s being blogged about).
For more on the rise of corporate blogging or the end of the heyday of unemployed (er, “consultant”) blogging, see the Blog Business Summit.
