Nashville TV Station Blogger Calls It Quits
A lot of us do this for fun. For me, it's a cross between enjoying myself and slaking some mental thirst that I don't quite understand. Why I would do that in public is beyond me as well.
I've given the idea of blogging for sustenance a bit of consideration, in the purely theoretical sense. I don't think I could maintain so rigid a writing schedule, but it's hard to say without actually having the time so conveniently allotted to doing so.
There are days when it must really wear on a person, and today was one of those days. I have considered Nashville is Talking a daily feedreader stop since its inception. I hope it, the blog, will continue; and I imagine that its author will continue, if not there.
I hate to see one of the good ones go; but if you check out the circumstances that most immediately preceded the decision, I think you'll see why it was a valid option. Not many people are made to withstand the storm of verbal abuse that the internet can unleash. [I'm not saying I'm one of them, either. I'm not looking for any trouble. I'm a small fish, anyway.]
Now, to the questions that remain. Will the station's management determine that the NiT blog is an important web fixture? Will they staff it as soon as is prudent? On second thought, maybe it's too soon to ask. The sun has barely set on a tumultuous day (for some). A night's rest can bring answers.
