Blogging Polling. And then some.

I consider myself a rather enthusiastic member of BlogWorld. I try to post, I try to give it some meaning, sometimes it's just teasing... But, let's leave that aside. I also read a lot of blogs, predominantly here on LJ, which seems to be rich and abundant enough. And I think that with time some rather distinctly diverse "bloggers classes". So, here's a poll. Help me find out if this is approximately true picture of BlogWorld around us.

And discuss, please.

the main reason that i started with blogging was to make connections from a place that i did not really have any meaningful connections. also, it was an excellent way to keep up with the american culture which is hard to do in another country.

now that i'm in a different place, i am enjoying keeping the connections that i have made mainly through commenting. i pretty much have lost any desire to keep posting but i am still loving what folks are writing in theirs.

anyways, great polls... thanks for that!

...and I think that you should look for desire to keep posting as well...

HUGS, Bob and welcome!
