My AP Literature and Composition students are working on their senior presentations. I have promised them that I too will complete a research project. This blog has been a huge part of my project, as I am researching why people blog. I have read several articles pertaining to my topic, but I would love to gather as much information from “real live bloggers”, if at all possible. So, if you are willing to participate, I have a few questions I would love to ask you. Perhaps we could make this a meme and you could post in on your on blog and just leave a link under my comments…..
1. How long have you been blogging?
2. Why did you start blogging?
3. What have you found to be the benefits of blogging?
4. How many times a week do you post an entry?
5. How many different blogs do you read on a regular basis?
6. Do you comment on other people’s blogs?
7. Do you keep track of how many visitors you have? Is so, are you satisfied with your numbers?
8. Do you ever regret a post that you wrote?
9. Do you think your audience has a true sense of who you are based on your blog?
10. Do you blog under your real name?
11. Are there topics that you would never blog about?
12. What is the theme/topic of your blog?
13. Do you have more than one blog? If so, why?
Thanks for participating!

Oops. I meant to link to the actual post
Here you go. I love to help out teachers. (-:
Just found your blog through a link on Cathy’s blog (kittling) and the title of your blog immediately attracted me – why have you chosen this name, if it is not too nosy to ask (I am asking because I am Danish 😉 )
I will put you on my blogroll, because your blog certainly looks interesting.
Just posted this meme today:
It would be really interesting to see a summary of your final conclusions!
Hi Ms. M — what is your time constraint? I don’t think I can do this for you this week but I could next week.
I’ve blogged my answers here: http://louspages.blogspot.com/2009/05/why-do-you-blog-meme.html
I just blogged about this–hopefully it isn’t too late.
Thanks to everyone who participated in this survey. Your answers were interesting and extremely helpful. I love the community of blogging!
Posted mine as well, did it for fun, not sure if I actually made it to your “deadline” but just dropped by to say that I enjoyed answering the survey 🙂
