Rick MacArthur, head of Harper's Magazine, is down on blogging and bloggers
I do think blogging is really bad for writers. Ask Andrew Sullivan. He almost had a breakdown. You can see the quality of bloggers' writing decline. We hired Walter Kirn to be our every-other-month columnist. We're sending him to the Republican National Convention but don't want him to blog because we don't want to dilute what he's doing for the print magazine.I lean to the other philosophy. If you have the idea and the opportunity, why leave it unwritten? The well fills up again, is my experience.
