Blogging Depression and Big in Japan

Allow me a couple of diversions

Through various blogs (Diamond Geezer and Geoff's Blog) I came across the excellent and hilarious "What everyone should know about Blog Depression"

All bloggers who've been blogging for longer than I'd say 6 months or a year will be nodding their heads at this. "Most bloggers feel down and find their own blog sickening now and then. It's a natural reaction to the self induced and largely imaginary pressures of blogging. But when these feelings are severe or prolonged - the blogger may lose all sense of proportion, becoming angry and bitter about an undertaking which was totally voluntary and which does not directly contribute to his or her continued survival, on this, our planet earth"

Yeah I went through blogging depression at some stage - as a "community builder" I certainly thought "got plenty of visitors, so why is no one commenting?". Certainly got blog pressure and to a stage of thinking "WTF do I blog about, I haven't updated for days. Argh, what's going to happen? Ah who gives a toss anyway?"

Anyway, read the whole pamphlet yourself you'll find it hysterical or enlightening or hopefully, both.

Big in Japan

Was amused to find this blog amongst the Great British Blogs in a British Council publication (no less) for Japan. I vaguely remember giving them a quote of some description months ago and then forgot all about it, till the publication landed on my doorstep over the weekend. Thanks guys! Also thanks to fellow nominated bloggers Funky Pancake (a regular blog I read) and Hippy Shopper have scanned the whole piece for you to see. Altogether now, singalong with Alphaville - Ah, you're big in Japan, tonite.......
