Blogging keeps you healthy

Mar - 7 - 2008

Who knew?? In an article titled Blogging’s Good For Your Health Claudine Ryan let’s us all know that our blogging is actually keeping us healthy!

Blogging can help you feel less isolated, more connected to a community and more satisfied with your friendships, both online and face-to-face, new research has found.

The research, from Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, found after two months of regular blogging, people felt they had better social support and friendship networks than those who didn’t blog.

I mentioned in a post a while ago about how our blogging sometimes upsets those around us:

A friend of mine recently started blogging. She is still learning the ropes and really wants to give it her all. This means that she’s spending a lot of free time blogging and reading blogs. Sometimes this bugs her spouse.

What does this have to do with NFAIS? Apparently Michael went through the same thing. He talked about how before he brought blogs into his organization he spent his nights and weekends driving his spouse crazy by using his free time to play with blogs. He encouraged attendees to really take the time to experiment and learn about the technology – even if it means driving your spouse crazy. I guess I’m lucky that I have a geek for a husband – he wanted to learn about blogs right along with me!

So now – those of you going through this can tell your significant others that blogging is actually good for you :)

    Well, I think the problem with that argument is while it may good for you, it isn’t so good for your spouse who may feel isolated without you. They also may not like blogging, especially if they are in the “light but satisfied category”. :)
