By coincidence, in the past month or so I've come across 3 blogs that were shutting down or cutting back due to RL. One was a druid blog that I had started frequenting due to playing my druid more "seriously" in Wrath, one was Big Red Kitty, which I didn't read much but enjoyed and another was just a random blog that I found via another random blog I found via another random blog I found...
It made me wonder is it impossible to balance RL, gaming and heavy blogging about gaming?
It is easy to have a blog like mine, where it mostly consists of me ranting about what's bugging me - mostly about people and less about the game (I'll need to dwell on that later!) But it is more time consuming to have a blog helpful to other gamers like Resto4Life or Big Red Kitty.
It is easier to just have a RL, but without gaming its no fun. And of course you wouldn't have a gaming blog without a game.
I have less of a RL, more game and a blog with no content. Easy Peasy!
But having a full RL, gaming and a blog with depth seems highly improbable.
