Dukeo really sucks - no matter what type of comment I try to leave there, I never get past the dreaded "Error" pop-up box. Today I tried typing in the addy of my WordPress blog on the outside chance that Dukeo restricts blogger/blog*spot blogs from commenting. But, still a no-go!
I was attracted to the article in question by a tweet from the mighty dragonblogger "How To Ease the Pressure of Blogging" - my first reaction was "why on earth would you bother blogging if it gave you headaches?"
Pressure? Really? Why would anyone want to bother presenting a blog if they felt "pressured?" Totally the wrong approach to what should be a rewarding activity.
According to Dukeo "...any time goals enter into the picture, you’re going to have stress." WHAT? People can't have goals without subjecting themselves to stress?
R.C.Engs [Alcohol and Other Drugs: Self Responsibility. Tichenor Publishing Company, Bloomington, IN, 1987] says physical problems related to chronic stress include the lowering of the immune response, chronic muscle tension, and increased blood pressure. These problems can eventually lead to serious life-threatening illnesses such as heart attacks, kidney disease, and cancer.
If blogging is stressing you out, you shouldn't be blogging! Get off the computer and go do something productive with your life!
