What Kind of Blogger Are You?
A big election that you care about is coming up. Do you...
Post lots of news links, covering all sides fairly equally?
Pretend you don't know who to vote for, so lots of people will post arguments for you to read?
Make fun of everyone running, even the person that you support?
Write up detailed analysis of debates, polls, demographics, and party platforms?
Blog about who your friends are voting for - and the conversations you've had?
Blog about actually voting, but that's it?
When you blog, do you link to other bloggers?
You link to specific posts all the time.
Hardly ever - unless they've blogged something about you.
Yes, to subtly make fun of them.
Sure, if they've said something particularly smart or insightful.
Yup, you like people who read your blog to know who your friends are.
Only if you're blogging about meeting them in real life.
You like blogs that:
Show you lots of cool new funny things and news links
Link to your blog. Seriously.
Have witty commentary on pop culture, the internet, or politics.
Have intelligent posts on what's going on in the world today.
Are run by people you know.
That tell a good story of the blogger's everyday life.
People like your blog because...
You're the first to have the scoop on what's cool or funny
You're cute. Duh!
You're the master / mistress of the virtual smackdown
You have insights they may have not thought of before
You're a friend of theirs
You have interesting day to day stories
How many topics do you usually blog about?
Depends - whatever cool things you on other blogs.
One. Your lovely self.
You've got a few favorites, but anything you can write a funny post about is game.
You've got a half dozen pet subjects you know a great deal about.
A few - usually stuff you and your friends are talking about.
Anything that happened in your life this week.
Your biggest blogging pet peeve is:
People who don't have enough interesting links in their posts
Boring blogs about politics or news
Bloggers who play pretend nice with one another to get more traffic
Filler blog posts that are lacking in content
Anonymous blogs that your friends may be hiding from you
Bloggers who never share anything about themselves
Finally, why do you blog?
To show your cool finds to people.
To get lots of traffic
For your own self-amusement, really
To think out loud a little, and get opinions in return
To keep in touch with your friends
To have a virtual diary of sorts
