Well people are starting to realize and see that blogging and trying to get the views and clicks is causing a lot of problems for people.
In a story in the New York Times, In Web World of 24/7 Stress, Writers Blog Until They Drop, the stress is getting to people who blog and try to get ahead. It has even taken the life of two bloggers.
I just need to say no job is worth that much. You need to have a balance so there is a break for people so that they can relax and have fun. Sitting at a computer 24/7 is not healthy and will cause you to leave this earth a lot earlier than you should.
As an employer, they bear some of the responsibility in this. They should be working to take care of the people that are making them loads of money. If they don’t, they are greedy little bastards and their blogs should not be read.
That is why I don’t read Gizmodo. The stupid stunt they pulled during CES was just wrong. That is just plain wrong. But they are some of the worst offenders by paying writers based upon how many views their posts get.
Some sanity needs to come into this, otherwise people will burn out, the blog owners will lose good writers, and then they will lose revenue.
