Is blogging dangerous to your health?
A while ago, we blogged on how religion reporting can be dangerous to your faith — two top-notch religion reporters lost theirs after covering too many church scandals. Now the New York Times tells us that two bloggers have lost their lives trying to keep up a 24/7 pace. Yikes! And I thought news agency journalism was stressful…
Actually, blogging at a news agency is different because our breaking news takes top priority. Some big religion stories may not get blogged about on FaithWorld, mostly because they are already being covered as a news story and correspondents may not have any other interesting material (or any extra time) to blog about them.
There are already quite a few blogs in the U.S. on the upcoming visit by Pope Benedict (Washington and New York, April 15-20). We’ll be blogging about it too, when time and the news file permit.
