When bloggers give too much information

One of the things that I like about reading blogs is that they are personal. Even the most serious of bloggers give little snippets of information that make us remember that these are, in fact, humans writing these posts. Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit did some "hospiblogging" while his wife was hospitalized; Ann Althouse posts pictures of her strolls and simulblogs American Idol.

There is a line, however. I did not need to know how Andrew Sullivan spends his mornings, or what Michael Stephens wears at the gym. I promise not to do that to you unless I really feel the need to gross you out that day.
