"Andrew Sullivan, if you're reading this, some flowers would be nice," laments Erika Drezner in "My life as a blog widow," a guest post at the blog of her husband Daniel, who has just wrapped up a week of guest hosting over at Andrew Sullivan's:
Dan’s blog has been something of a test. I can’t remember his being so consistently distracted since he was writing his dissertation We were newly dating then, I would catch him sort of staring off in the distance when we were talking and I’d say, “you’re thinking about the dissertation again, aren’t you?” Now it is not so much the thinking as the doing.
I look for my husband as some sort of help and he is tethered to the computer. I am thoroughly convinced that he will blog through the birth of any future children. I think I may have to ask Andrew Sullivan to coach me through my next delivery.
