Bloggers who go too far

Don't expect me to do this for Internal Monologue:

SAN FRANCISCO — They work long hours, often to exhaustion. Many are paid by the piece — not garments, but blog posts. This is the digital-era sweatshop. You may know it by a different name: home.

A growing work force of home-office laborers and entrepreneurs, armed with computers and smartphones and wired to the hilt, are toiling under great physical and emotional stress created by the around-the-clock Internet economy that demands a constant stream of news and comment.

I love my Google Ad revenue as much as the next person (aside: I just broke $100 in my account, so I'll be getting my second payment next month! W00t!), but it's not worth giving yourself a heart attack over.
