Write Your Heart Out

The New York Times website is featuring an advanced post of a NYT Magazine article by Emily Gould, former Gawker employee and formerly obsessive blogger.

The whole article, while tragically paginated (TEN pages? Really?!?), was a fascinating read and an excellent window into the mind of somebody taking a hobby too far. I’m certainly in no danger of reaching even the minor celebrity dealt with by Gould. I can, however, empathize with her concern for too easily sharing private detail in a public forum, regardless of the parties, feelings, or consequences involved.
