Death by blogging

In the NYTimes, Matt Richtel reports that blogging is stressful. "To be sure, there is no official diagnosis of death by blogging, and the premature demise of two people obviously does not qualify as an epidemic. There is also no certainty that the stress of the work contributed to their deaths. But friends and family of the deceased, and fellow information workers, say those deaths have them thinking about the dangers of their work style." Bloggers beware: Expect concern from families and loved ones after they read this article in the Times tomorrow. Just as Richtel suggested, my worried (or perhaps disapproving?) sister sent me a link to this newsflash as soon as she read it.
