Blogged to death

A growing work force of home-office laborers and entrepreneurs, armed with computers and smartphones and wired to the hilt, are toiling under great physical and emotional stress created by the around-the-clock Internet economy that demands a constant stream of news and comment.

People work themselves to death in all industries. Blogging just happens to make the process far more enjoyable (and sometimes, even lucrative).
