Take that!

A bit of pro-blogging hype that I came across in the Washington Monthly archives:

INCREASE YOUR IQ BY BLOGGING!....If you're a blogger and your significant other ever gives you grief about the amount of time you spend on your hobby, this post called "Brain of the Blogger" is for you. It's written by a pair of doctors who are "strong advocates for neurologically-based approaches to learning," and they've written a post crediting blogging with doing everything short of curing cancer. Blogs promote critical thinking, analytical thinking, creative thinking, intuitive thinking, associational thinking, and analogical thinking. Blogs also increase access and exposure to quality information and combine the best of solitary reflection and social interaction. Take that, video games!

And take that, significant other!

Thanks for this article, Brian. I don't have a significant other yammering on about my blogging, just a guilty conscience.
