While I don’t have researched post for you to share today, I did want to let you all know about a survey for wine blog readers currently going on. Well, it is currently active until tomorrow, September 1st, as that date is the deadline for all surveys to be completed.
You may or may not recall from my Summary of the Wine Bloggers Conference Part II, there is an ongoing study investigating the motivations of blog creators as well as the perceptions and motivations of blog readers. The researchers contacted hundreds of bloggers and blog readers and asked them to fill out a survey was many questions aimed at answering the aforementioned questions. The preliminary results of this study have found a few important factors that most influence wine bloggers, however it is not let clear how blog readers place value and importance on specific blog characteristics.
That being said, the research team is actively recruiting blog readers to complete the survey, as the sample size is not yet large enough to perform statistical analysis on the results.
You have until tomorrow, September 1st, to fill out this survey. It shouldn’t take you more than 15 minutes tops.
Simply by completing the survey, you are entered into a drawing to have the chance to win $200 worth of wine from your favorite wine store!
Here is the link to the survey: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Oregon2012
Please complete this survey ASAP, and tell them that The Academic Wino sent you!
