I discovered this warning to writers about the perils of blogging to their craft and productivity and thought it worth sharing. Although “Vampires of the Internet” is a rather dramatic title, I think the author has some good points and the piece applies as much to nonfiction writing as fiction writing. Perhaps more, when one takes into account the research time necessary for historical writing.

Fortunately, I’m nowhere near the level of ‘writer’ as yet (though striving to leave the realm of ‘hack’), so this blog will go on.
