Where is your post linking to the post that writers should not keep blogs?

It's on the Wyrdsmith's blog, and it links to Robin Hobb's blog.

Here's the link to the post:

If pressed, I'd have to agree with the commentors that blogging is not a problem for disciplined writers. I think creative writing comes from a different place than the more technical writing of a blog post. But I can see the allure of telling myself that if I make a post to my blog "at least I'm writing something today."

I hope you're being pleasingly productive, Rick.
