Following yesterdays article about how bloggers appear to be suffering from heart attacks as well as a range of other ailments I decided to try and offer a few tips to keep healthy while you update your blog.

Apparently bloggers complain of weight fluctuations, sleep disorders, exhaustion and other symptoms stemming from the strain of striving to produce top quality articles 24 hours a day.

To be sure, there is no official diagnosis of death by blogging, and the premature demise of two people obviously does not qualify as an epidemic. There is also no certainty that the stress of the work contributed to their deaths. But friends and family of the deceased, and fellow information workers, say those deaths have them thinking about the dangers of their work style.
