MIT Blog Survey

Just a quick link and comment to the results of a blog survey conducted by Fernanda ViĆ©gas that attempts to map blogging habits. I’d guess that the results are somewhat complicated by the fact that the survey group consists primarily of people who are highly-educated (nearly one third have a graduate degree). Still, the survey seems to identify a few social norms that are beginning to develop among bloggers including a trend toward more personal, “rambling” entries and a tendency to avoid identifying one’s employer in the blog.
