Professor Marc Lynch speaks for many bloggers when he writes:

Once more, with feeling: I blog about what I feel like blogging about, when I feel like blogging about it. When I have a baby with a rash spreading all over his body, I’m going to take him to the doctor. I’m not going to blog (he’s fine, by the way – thanks for asking). When I have meetings in my department, I’m going to attend them. I’m not going to blog. When I have articles to write, I’m not going to blog. When I want to take my lovely wife out to dinner on her birthday, I’m not going to blog. Deal with it.

Indeed. For the record, I should note that the phrase “my lovely wife” has been trademarked by EphBlog. But Marc is free to use it as well!
