Rosie O’Donnell’s Blogging Blues

Celebuzz / January 27, 2009

After several months of radio silence, Rosie O’Donnell has spoken out on her vow of blog silence, which she took earlier this month.

The 46-year-old, once prolific with poetry and multimedia pieces on her official site, caught up with People Magazine last night in New York to discuss the end of her online musings.

“It got so commonplace, it was kind of being used on entertainment shows as edited pieces,” Rosie said of her posts. “I was like, ‘It’s not worth it.'”

O’Donnell said that she’ll instead focus on driving attention to her charitable efforts, like her Rosie’s Broadway Kids, which affords access to the arts for youth.

“[Blogging] wasn’t providing the joy that it used to,” O’Donnell said.

Though she may not be on hand for a haiku, don’t count her completely out. O’Donnell has already blogged the very story of her blogging departure.
