    When I was doing OND regularly, it started to consume my days. I remember putting 5-6 hours into a nightly digest. I wouldn't edit in the dkos editor since, as you know, it eats diaries.

     Since I like international news, I tried hard to make sure I had sources from around the globe and tried to only cite two stories from any one source. If I had "extra" time, I'd add photos. The thing that saved me was that I gave up commenting on the news stories in the body of the diary for the most part.

    Invariably, the big story or theme I was highlighting wasn't as fetching as the weird or odd news item I put in because I found it interesting. All-in-all, it was good for me to step back from daily or weekly OND editing. Now, I usually can pinch hit a decent digest in about an hour, but the detail work I used to put in isn't there. I notice, but I may be the only one.
