Man, every time I read anything about Dooce, I have this little refrain going through my head saying, “get a job get a job get a job get a job.” Assuming that she is regular depressed and not inpatient-needs depressed, a job would be so great for her. Maybe like 20 hours at a non-profit that she can really get behind? It would:

1) Give her a source of income that does not require her to continually mine her ever-shrinking personal life for daily content.
2) Introduce structure to her weeks.
3) Enable her to meet new people (who are old enough to reasonably consent to having her write about them).
4) Give her something interesting to write about again.

Paradoxically, the way to stay relevant/interesting is not to focus more energy on the blog but less.
