So How Do I Find the Time to Blog?

From the Seed Hive Mind comes the following question:

How is it that all the PIs (Tara, PZ, Orac et al.), various grad students, post-docs, etc. find time to fulfill their primary objectives (day jobs) and blog so prolifically?

As a PI, I actually find blogging to be a good release, and I don’t find that it takes nearly as much time as people think. For me, when I’m inspired to write, the words come quickly (if not coherently). Plus, I don’t watch television, which frees up lots of time that most people don’t even realize they’re pissing away.
The other aid is that I usually have a bunch of partially completed posts saved, so I often don’t have to write something from scratch.
What I do find is that the more stressful science becomes (or if I’m sleep deprived), the less I blog about science, and the more I blog about politics.

    I blog about sex, but other than that, my logic and approach pretty much follow your own.

    Good point about not watching television. I missed that one, but it is a big factor for me.
