If you are a blogger, you have likely heard of a company called Technorati. The company really has had its conundrums within the past, but it still represents an important part of the blogosphere. It is a well-known site for bloggers. Well, they have been doing some in-depth studies with the blogosphere, and they are now looking for some extra help.
Technorati has been conducting blogospheric studies for over the past few years to help the public have a better understanding of how this gigantic bubble of information operates. They now are asking bloggers to take a survey, which will likely allow them to publish more information in their reports.
This was the email that I just received:
Technorati has been tracking the Blogosphere for the past several years through our State of the Blogosphere study. This year we have decided to expand our study beyond the sheer size and characteristics of the blogosphere in order to hear more from you, the bloggers. How, when and why are you blogging? Is this a side business, full time job or something you do for fun? Our goal is to analyze the growth of the field as well as understand the people who make the space tick. Help us and join the study of the ongoing global conversation!

We hope you will find this survey enjoyable. It should take just 15-20 minutes of your time, and your responses are entirely confidential. Be sure to check back on Technorati in late September for a summary of the results.

Why not help out the folks over at Technorati. Spare a few minutes of your time and take the survey. We will have a better understanding of what we are all dealing with here.
That’s so interesting, I would have guesses the 18-24 year olds would have the most blogs. I’m in the 25-34 range and I find it hard to keep up with my blogs and blogs I follow. I guess others manage better than I do when it comes to blogging.
I did give them my email address to participate in further studies with Technorati as it relates to blogging. So far, I have not received any emails from them nor anyone else involved with Technorati. Not sure how you are getting loaded with spam.
That would be really disappointing if they did that. I have yet to take the survey (plan on doing so soon), but Jeff took it—haven’t heard of him mention anything about spam.
Anyways, thanks for the heads up.
I agree that the survey took a good 20-30 minutes to complete, now I am dealing with the unwanted emails making their way into my inbox related to the survey – anyone else having this problem? It looks as though people are replying to the mass email or something? Just what I need – MORE junk emails!!
Just finished up the survey. You will definitely need at least 30 minutes available to get through this thing. but there were quite a few interesting questions and the results will be interesting to see come September.
If you take the survey, let me know how you voted on the important questions. I’d be interested in knowing. I’ll be taking it soon (once I can find some spare time).
