Entrepreneur Magazine reports that "many bloggers are finding the practice overwhelming and are suffering from blog burnout," based on a survey that showed "66 percent of blogs have been abandoned, either temporarily (not updated within two months) or permanently." I hope they limited the survey to blogs that at one point had regular postings. Some people hear how easy it is to start a blog, set one up, and never do anything with it. These people haven't burned out! Then there are all those people who are blogging to advance their business interests: it's an "effective business tool," but an annoying burden. For them, Entrepreneur Magazine his some practice tips: blog in a niche and on a schedule, find a relevant news item, quickly link and "make a tiny comment."
