A few months ago I participated in a survey of bloggers. At the time, I mistakenly thought that it was sports bloggers specifically, but looking at the results today, it appears to have been a pan-topic collection of blogs. It also appears to have been a vehicle for promoting video content on blogs, which is an offering of Videojug, the company who did the survey. To their credit, they haven’t put me on any mailing list or tried to pressure me into buying anything.
But that’s neither here nor there.
Anyway, if you’re interested in some meta information about bloggers, you can check out the results here. The one that I want to draw attention to–especially for a certain Cincinnati Reds Director of Media Relations who is paranoid that the whole blogsphere is out to squirm their way into the inner sanctum expressly to embarrass him publicly–the “Reasons for Running a Blog”:
“To take advantage of undue access,” “To humiliate the very subject I care enough about to dedicate time to writing about,” and “To cheer in the press box” fail to appear in the list. Imagine that.
