TED BARLOW'S DISEASE or TED BARLOW'S SYNDROME (pr. n.)

The affliction that causes bloggers to give up blogging for an unspecified, sometimes permanent, length of time, due to complete lack of motivation to write stuff that goes unrecognized, unrenumerated, unrecompensed, and unrealized. Usually the sudden realization that blogging gives back to the individual very little in terms of the space/time continuum, save emotional satisfaction, even if the blogger has a Blogads adstrip.

Ted Barlow’s Disease was named after blogger blogger Ted Barlow, who went on hiatus from his own blog, Ted Barlow, on October 23, 2002, with no explanation, for a period of two months. Soon thereafter several other prominent bloggers also quit, either temporarily or permanently, and actually went on to become productive citizens in the Three Dimensional World.

There is no known cure for Ted Barlow’s disease, only treatment.
