Drum on Blog

The repetitive and painfully tedious nature of my editing work today, coupled with the slow load times that are part and parcel of the online platform that hosts the content I'm working, does present one perk: I've got plenty of time to divert my attention, in 25-45 second snippets, to all my favorite bloggers.

So it is that I find myself catching up on Kevin Drum from Monday past. Just when I'm coming off a long layoff and looking to get my readership back up (mere double digits would make me happy right about now), Kevin's is the sanguine voice of reason. Bloggers: slow down. You don't have to react to everything. Pick your words thoughtfully, Drum reminds me, and your readers will come find you.
