Bloggers: up close and personal
In honour of Family Day (in Ontario) and in homage to a smart-professor friend of mine (stay tuned, you will be hearing more from him on the Star's web pages soon), I'd like to invite all the political-blogging family, of all political stripes, to click here and fill out a comprehensive survey of the Canadian political blogosphere.
I've filled it out and urge others to do so too, so that Thierry Giasson, of the Université Laval, along with his associates, can do some important, ground-breaking research into what exactly makes up the Canadian political-blogging community. Here's how they describe the possible benefits of this research:
The study will describe the socio-political profile of Canadian political bloggers, including their intentions and motivations, their perception of the political role of blogging and of the Canadian blogosphere, and their specific political behaviours.
Thierry has done some important work already in the emerging realm of political marketing and communication. People will be talking about this study once the results are compiled and analyzed, so why not make your voice heard now? That's what blogging is all about, isn't it?
