This is a guest post from Peter Chen, who is studying how people use the internets.
This is a voluntary survey being undertaken by Dr Peter John Chen of the Department of Government at the University of Sydney.
I’m writing to ask for a favour. I’m currently working on a book on Australian politics and new media. As part of this I want to do a small study of blog readers, using comparative data from explicitly political and not explicitly political blogs. As such, I’m contacted a few of the more highly ranked blogs to see if they’d be interested in participating, and Hoyden About Town agreed to post my call for participants.
The survey is open to readers of the blog who live in Australia. The survey will be used in a forthcoming (2012) book on the internet and Australia.
The survey will take only 10 minutes of your time, and all responses are anonymous and confidential.
The survey can be found here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Australian_blog_readers
Hoyden About Town bloggers will have access to a summary of the initial findings, and may choose to post the summary on the blog.
Thanks for considering this request.
