The unbearable lightness of blogging
This is just so you know that I have a complex about blogging. After I’ve posted a blog I get caught in a technology loop, as described by Portlandia. Actually, it doesn’t take much to get me stuck in one, since I work from home, so I rely quite heavily on the internet for water cooler chats. But today I’m going to make a concerted effort to not check my email/facebook/twitter/wordpress stats until I’ve drawn another comic!
In some ways blogging is heaps less ephemeral than published books. If you know the key words to search for blog posts, they are always accessible. Books, on the other hand, easily disappear off shelves and go out of print. But the internet makes you hungry for new stuff, and you need to gobble up more articles, more posts, more funny pictures. It gives you a bit of a junk food headache afterwards.
