As someone who doesn't aspire to be a professional blogger I have lapsed into a passive blogging mode for the last month or so. Passive blogging is a bit like passive smoking you hang on bloglines or some other feed reader to watch other bloggers recycle the news just to be social.

An A-list passive blogger is probably someone who is exposed to the equivalent of ten packs a day by attending a professional blogging course to get mentioned by a professional blogger.

The long term effects of passive blogging are not known at present but it probably means I will never send an email to my friends on a blogable topic ever again.
