Please take a survey… for science!

Title: Public Request for Participation

This is a public request for participation for an academic project, “Creativity and Blogging .”

This project attempts to discover what is the relationship between blogging success and attitude. If you choose to participate, you will take a survey aimed at discovering what you think about blogging, what you feel about blogging, and what you do about blogging. You would also be asked a few questions regarding your personality and your views on cooperation. This involves answering about seventy questions. The survey should take about 30 minutes.

You will receive no direct benefit from participating. The only indirect benefit you would receive is the knowledge you are assisting in ongoing scientific research. No compensation is provided Before you begin the survey, you will be shown an informed consent form with additional details. Of course, you can stop taking the survey at any time.

If you agree to participate, please follow the below link to take the web survey:

2007 Dozier Internet Law Google Rankings – Week 4

This week’s poll is a tale of stability. Of the top 10 entry, only two are not holds. The biggest gainer is Plagiarism Today, which is apparently enjoying the popularity of a mention on Writing Thoughts. “PT” jumps 7 points to #6, while Blog of M’Gath gives way, falling 13 spaces to #18. Ars Technica is the other mover in the Top 12, jumping one position to #5.

Only one entry fell out of the Top 25: Jown W Dozier Jr’s blog. A discussion thread from Something Awful takes old #23 Dozier’s place and then some, standing tall at #12.

Because there are now only 3 Dozier-affiliated sites in the Top 25 (down from 4 in Weeks 3 and 2, and 7 in Week 1), only three pages are included in the “Others receiving votes” category. Of those three, one had dropped from the rankings last week, while the others received votes in the previous round.
