The blog must be fed...

All you bloggers out there can surely relate to Joel Achenbach's "Rough Draft" column in Sunday's Washington Post. If you didn't read it, here's a taste:

"The blog is hungry. The blog will not be ignored. It is an insatiable little beast, a creature still unclassified by science -- hairy, warty, slobbering, with its own fiendish agenda. I often fantasize about killing the blog, but I worry that it will respond just like the crazed computer in '2001: A Space Odyssey': It will try to kill me first."

Or maybe it's just me. I hate to admit the blog has taken control of my life, but of course it has - at least to some degree. "Have I posted to the blog today?" is moving up there with "Have I eaten yet?" You guys have that same feeling, right?


The "Achenblog," by the way, can be found here.
