Why do you blog? How do you blog? And how do on-line relationships and blogging fit into your real-life world?
I know you’ve all got lots to say about this because, well, don’t we all? It’s a life-changing thing, blogging is, and one of my most favorite bloggers, who also happens to be a researcher at the University of Waterloo, has set up a survey of blogging practices that you really should participate in.
I’ll let her take it from here:
“Have you ever been freaked out when a casual acquaintance from ‘real life’ found your blog? Or when your Sitemeter showed a steady stream of Google pervs visiting your site? Do you wonder about whether to put up photos of your children or your friends on your blog, for fear of your privacy? Many of us have experienced these unsettling moments, and questioned or even changed our writing styles and our habits as a result.
What strategies do you use to reach the audience you want, while maintaining your own privacy? Most bloggers use some kind of anonymization or privacy strategy, a ‘screen name’ being the most simple and obvious.”
Please help her out and contribute to the study of something important to us all by clicking here. You can also contact Aimee directly at email@example.com for more information. She is going to BlogHer in San Francisco and she’d love to interview you in person: if you’re going send her an email at the address above.
It’s BBQ month over at Don Mills Diva Recipes and Reviews and I just posted LeeAnne's latest unique recipe for grilled haloumi cheese. It’s perfect if you’re lactose intolerant or vegetarian or if you just plain love tasty cheese. Check it out!
