It’s commonly assumed that bloggers have no life.
While musing on this fact today, it suddenly occurred to me today that the ultimate test of this is… how many blogs were posted on Christmas Day.
Now, I extracted the addresses of all the posts that came through that day. Now, all I could easily get was the addresses and they’re not always meaningful. So I assumed that if one post was posted that it was a “Merry Christmas” post such as I myself put up.
So who did more than that?
Dear John just had to tell us about the dangers of protectionism. (Adam Smith then ruined his record by commenting!)
No Minister put in a few… but then there are several authors there some of which are in the UK. We can overlook that.
Oswald Bastable found a few things to say in a couple of posts, something about drinking…
Fundamentally, I believe that these economists are making an implicit moral judgment … we cannot take them as an a-priori truth, and we should try to understand the dynamics of how we got where we are in order to make any sort of conclusion. Stating that ignoring these dynamics somehow makes our analysis value free…
Yea, big demand for that sort of thing on the 25th…!
Now, everyone’s favorite blogger did get in a couple. He informed us all about Disney’s decision to pull out of the Dawn Treader movie, and mused about the supply of White House interns (attracted by Obama’s pecks). Step away from the keyboard Mr Farrar, it won’t hurt, I promise!
Another rightie also had trouble with his technology habit. Mr WhaleOil posted 3 missives, but due to technical reasons (and the fact that I’m dead lazy) I have no idea what kept the good orca away from his Christmas turkey. Let’s assume that various personages were called muppets, loonies and/or numpty twats and leave it at that…
But the award for “Blogger with the Least Life” goes to….
Seriously, get a life mate!
