Apparently some high output bloggers have been dropping dead, leading the New York Times to blame the pressure of blogging. but as Jeremy Blachman points out, ‘middle age geek who never leaves their computer has heart attack’ is a somewhat less gripping headline.
If I drop dead through an excess of blogging, I shall be immensely annoyed, not least because I’m doing this completely for free (or rather actually paying for it). Luckily, first post lead times in housing law can be measured in days rather than ‘milliseconds’, so sometimes ‘tomorrow’ is an option.
This is a precursor to saying that I am forcibly being sent to do a stint in non-contentious work for a few months. Sad, I know, but it is apparently something that the pesky Law Society/SRA requires before they will actually let me qualify. This will mean catching up with an area that is largely new to me, so time might well be in rather short supply. As it is highly unlikely that the new area will seduce me with its charms, I’ll be sneaking back to my first love as often as possible (“just taking the dog for walk…”).
In the meantime, William Flack has the first in what will hopefully be a series on capacity and being a ‘protected person’ for housing litigation purposes. Interesting and useful stuff.
