I love following authors - existing, present and future!  Wonderful advice is out there.

However, everyone needs their relaxation time, working time, time to carry out their daily lives.  I personally feel when I choose to follow an author, who has nonetheless amazing advice to give, there is a happy medium in the number of posts which they should give.  I also feel when they do, in fact, proffer their wisdom it will be so much more meaningful if it were to be given regularly, timeously but please - not every single day!

Instead, on days where they do not post on their blog, they should rather be interacting with those who choose to follow them on Twitter or Facebook.  In other words, reacting to what is "out there" instead of holed up in their own daily lives.  By inter-acting with how other people think, feel, and their knowledge they will be adding to their own daily lives also.
