Top 10 Reasons NOT to Blog

B.L. Ochman has an interesting article on Top 10 Reasons Your Company Should Not Blog. Find those reasons on: Marketing Profs

Now with that article in mind, perhaps there are other reasons why a person or company should not blog. So let's do our own little David Letterman Top 10 - Can you think of any?

I'll start by naming a few I've found -

1. Blogging can be addictive

2. Blogging can cause weight gain

3. You may say something that comes back to haunt you

4. Your friends can no longer trust you to not blog about them

5. Blogging can and often does take up all your spare time

6. You stop sending Christmas cards and send email links to your blog greeting instead.

7. You spend more time cleaning your blog than you do cleaning your house.

Erno has submitted reasons 8 - 10

8. You will have a higher income, more taxes to pay

9. When there is no internet connection, you learn new words *&%^#$!@#$

10. You spend less time in bed with your partner

11. You have to explain to your little ones what blogging is and why you spend so much time doing it.

12. If you think of an idea for your blog in the middle of doing something else then you have to immediatley stop whatever you are doing and post to your blog before you forget your great idea.

Banana chimes in with 13 - 15

13. Blogging will make the tips of your fingers sore.

14. Blogging will make you curse Google for indexing it quicker, but not show up a high ranking for your chosen keywords.

15. Blogging will become a worser epidemic than mobile phones. (Everyones got one)

Go ahead, have a little fun! So we've gone over 10 reasons, Oh well :)
