A small sampling reflects only the opinion of the few. Here are the results of my recent poll on blogging and such, with 37 readers responding.
Eighteen percent are blogging more, a little more than half are blogging about the same and 24 % have cut back.
A little more than a quarter are reading fewer blogs. (I'm reading blogs, but fewer of them are about gardening. Did you know there are people who blog about makeup? One of the frequent questions is how many lipsticks do you carry in your purse. Lipsticks? In my purse?)
Sixty four percent of those taking part are on Facebook. (Suddenly there are gardeners all over Facebook in addition to kinfolks, old school chums, and work-related friends.)
Ten percent are spending more time on Blotanical, 62% are spending less time there and only about a quarter said they were looking forward to new changes there. (What new changes? some asked. Those might be the same who said they didn't know Stuart had a blog in last year's poll.)
I would like to see Blotanical Awards again in 2011. It kind of stirs up the competitive gene in us and gives reason to seek out new members. How about you?
Oh, and how many lipsticks in YOUR purse? Lip balm in your pocket is not the same.
