Tom Mangan has pulled the plug on Prints the Chaff, the editors blog that started it all.
Blogging was fun till it started getting to be too much like work: scanning dozens of blogs and news sites every day for blogworthy posts, then thinking up something to say, then saying it, then correcting all my typos. Time spent blogging was not spent with books, music, movies, family, physical fitness (I gained 15 pounds because I had to give up my workouts to free up time to blog). Lately I had come to dread it. Dread's always a good sign it's time to move on.
Blogging's not going to be the same without his new posts to race to. But he has kept the old stuff around on his personal site. I imagine he'll be blogging there occasionally. Drop by to give him your regards.

thanks for the kind words, thought I must correct the record: You had an editors' blog several months before I did.

If it hadn't been for you and a few other pioneers I'd have had nobody to link to and the whole thing would've never gotten off the ground.

Blaming weight gain on blogging? That's a new one. Next thing you know, people will be blaming their daily commutes.
