Ed is the most prolific blogger I know, usually posting several times per day. I have no idea where he comes up with the time for it. Ron’s posts are longer, but not nearly so often.
Reading Ed’s blog is very similar to the way I use my instant messenger; quirky little things being sent around periodically through the day. I read it a lot the same way that I read slashdot, just checking it every now and again for new stuff.
I was going to mention all this to him in an IM, but the comparison between his posts and IM came to mind, so I went this route.
