Scoble writes about a fight with his wife over his weblogging. Gotta say I wondered how he was able to write that much and be married. He’s right that writing about it is good therapy, but (once you’ve got the words down) it might be better to talk about it.
And yeah, balancing family and “creative time” can be tricky. Sometimes it’s easier to be “creative” (or just busy) than be there for people and deal with real things. Where’s the line? It’s a slippery slope. All I know is that I blog a lot when I’m depressed, or when I’m alone and happy; when I’m with my wife and happy, I don’t blog as much because I’d rather be there with her.
So yeah, good luck, Scoble, and try talking about it.
