Academic blogging survey

by Eszter Hargittai on November 19, 2004

As a follow-up to my recent post about academia and blogging, I have compiled a brief informal survey for academic bloggers, broadly defined to include all academics (any rank) who either read and/or write blogs. Please consider filling it out. It should take no more than five minutes. The material will not result in any scientific publications, it is merely meant as an informal exercise to inform some conversations. I am collecting all information anonymously. I will post a summary of the material on CT at a future date.

UPDATE (Saturday, Nov 27, 2004): I have now closed the survey, thanks to all those who participated.

Can British academics fill it *in* instead? :P

Does an ex-PhD student who still has access to a university library count?

lth – Do you realize I’m not a native speaker of English? Stuff like this really throws me off! (Throws me up and down and in circles?;)

simstim – Sure, it’s an informal survey, you should feel free. There’s a question that asks whether you’re an academic so I’ll have that info from there. I see that at least one non-academic has already taken the survey. (I guess it’s not necessary to use the fill word to address all this.:)

Hi Ezster — I’ll fill it out or in, but can I also add a shameless plug?

I’m looking for academic bloggers who are attending the AHA in Seattle to contact me if they are interested in getting together. Here’s the link.

Sure, ADM. Your comment about the meetings suggests a whole other post.. but that will have to wait for another day.
