Blogger Burnout.

A frequent topic here, first visited on January 15, 2009, Add “Blogger Burnout” To The List Of Blogger Ailments. For those of you keeping track, that would be about 3 months after I started Legal Insurrection.

Three months! Even then I realized that being a blogger could be about the most...

Earlier today, about 3000 visits ago, I passed 2 million visits since the start of this blog in mid-October 2008. The 1 million mark was passed in late September 2009 after 11.5 months, and the second million just 4 months later.

I missed it earlier today because I do not pay...

Sometime early yesterday morning, I received my one millionth visit. Eleven months and two weeks after my first post on October 12, 2008.

I hope the first million is the hardest. It has been mostly fun, but not easy.

When I started this blog, I really didn’t know what...

Life in the blogosphere is not fair. For weeks I have been beating the drum about the IRS being involved in our health care under Democratic proposals: IRS The New Health Care Enforcer (August 14, 2009).

I greatly appreciated...

I think it’s time for the Blogospheric Neologian to coin a new political phrase:

Specterenfreude

The pleasure derived from watching Arlen Specter do unto Democrats that which Specter did unto Republicans.

In the course of his first week as a Democrat Specter voted against the Democratic budget, rejected a Democratic measure on mortgage foreclosures,...

Based upon my identification of Blogger Mood Disorder, SiteMeter Envy, and Sitemeterenfraude, I have been appointedblogospheric neologian“:

I’m going to have to ask blogospheric neologian William Jacobson what to call it when the Professor [Glenn Reynolds] sends me traffic via a carom shot off a lesbian blogger.

It seems that almost everyday I learn more and more about blogging disorders. I really didn’t know what I was getting into when I started; I wish someone had warned me.

Early on, I self-diagnosed Blogger Mood Disorder (“a condition in which one’s mood swings up and down in sync with the...

Professor Stephen Baindridge, of “Professor Baindridge” fame, is simplifying and scaling back his blog as a result of “suffering for a while now from a severe case of blogging burnout.” When one of the “giants” of blogging needs a break, one has to wonder if this is where Blogger Mood Disorder...

When I announced the discovery of “Blooger Mood Disorder,” I had no idea what I was getting into. Next came, Bloggernoia and SiteMeter Fever elucidated by Robert Stacy McCain, then SiteMeter Envy.

I never should have started on this path. I have stumbled on “Internet Addition Disorder,” which disproportionately affects Chinese internet...

I recently identified Blogger Mood Disorder, “a condition in which one’s mood swings up and down in sync with the level of blog traffic.”

The Other McCain (the one who has never lost an election) then identified two syndromes related to BMD, “SiteMeter Fever” and “Bloggernoia.” These syndromes focus only on one’s...

Although I only have been blogging for fewer than three months, I have identified a problem which must be quite common. I’ll call it Blogger Mood Disorder. I have no psychiatric background, but I can identify the symptoms and have come up with the following description:
