When I was a journalistfor all of six weeks – I met journos who deliberately left things to the last minute, just for the buzz. And as a journalist, I grew to love that too.  But as an academic I hate it. Everything is better with reflection and thought, none of which comes under serious time pressure (mild pressure for sure, but not extreme pressure).
The 14 blog posts I rated highly in the last blog period were posted an average of eight days before the deadline (range 2-19 days).  Cause and effect?  Ya gotta wonder.
