Blogging Fatigue: Scott Sumner and Jeffrey Miron

Is the “daily” grind of blogging too much as Jeffrey Miron puts it in his April 18th post ?

Scott Sumner (The Money Illusion) felt the same. By the end of march he wrote:

“.. I am complete burned out, and have been for months. I’ve blogged an average of eight hours a day, seven days a week, for over two years.  … But now that lots of other people are saying the exact same thing, it’s time for me to take a break. So I’ll stop blogging for a few months …”

We will be missing both their stimulating analyses… until they return.

Greg Mankiw also told a reader asking for more posts that he did not intend to write more often, and many of his present posts refer the reader to his press op eds.

Well, maybe blogging has reached a plateau now. And indeed, there are not events worth commenting on daily.
