Take the Bloggers’ Study
Are you just a little exasperated with MSM news stories that tell — in so many wrong ways about –what bloggers are, do and think? Here is a chance for us all to contribute to the picture that folks have of bloggers and what blogging is. This may be our opporunity to straighten that biased picture frame, get the colors correct, and perspective right.
Diane Ensley at A List Review has featured a study at U Mass Dartmouth. The Center for Media Research, under the guidance Dr. Nora Barnes, is calling for professional bloggers to complete a three-page WORD survey. Imagine that actually asking bloggers rather than asking people who watch from afar. You can get the details and the survey by clicking through on the title below, which will take you to Diane’s post.
Not sure whether you qualify as a professional blogger? I wouldn’t use money as a measure. Why not download the survey and see whether you can answer the questions? They need to have ALL of the the data they can get in order to have a clear picture. Let’s not self-select ourselves out before we even start.
A major study could lend some real credibility to blogging.
