Occupational Safety has an article about workplace safety and health bloggers -- all two of us, me and John Lowe at "Impact Analysis" -- (apologies to Mine Safety Watch and Brooklyn Dodger).

"Having a blog is time-consuming, to say the least," said Barab, who has worked in the safety industry for more than 20 years, including 16 years as the director of AFSCME's health and safety program and a stint as an OSHA official during the Clinton administration. Like most bloggers, he maintains his site during off-hours from his day job, writing sometimes hours per day. "Usually I'll take at least one day a week off, here or there," he said. "My wife calls it my second job--my second unpaid job."
