Gawker to leave weekend field open

Gawker announces no weekend publishing [via Hylton].

Works for me: you might be surprised just how much of my unearned attention in the world of weblogs is due to the fact that what little publishing I do tends to be on weekends, or very late Pacific time (works nicely for Australia and Europe), or on holidays. may not list very many sites on US holidays, and lots of people actually hold in their posts until Monday “when more people will be reading,” but the people who are obsessed enough to read blogs at “off” times can be quite interesting, and influential. So one more site saving it for Monday (when I’m least likely to read a post, as I try to tear through a couple hundred at a time in my aggregator) is one less site competing with me for a few minutes of your attention. Go Gawker! Take Friday off, too!

Yay for Australia!

[possibly *the* most pointless comment. But, you mentioned down under, I couldn’t help myself :) ]
