Thank you to everyone taking part in the Blogging Survey. Thanks to my blog friends and word-of-blog, it is getting publicity and the large response is helping the quality of the survey. Many thanks!

Your help is greatly appreciated!
I'm knee deep in peer-reviewed journal articles I've researched on media theory issues relating to this study so at the same time I'm reading through these, I'll be honing in on the blogs that I'll be analyzing for a content study as an adjunct to this survey. This project builds on previous research I've done in the area of new media studies as part of my graduate studies towards a master's in Media Studies. This is an area I'm particularly interested in and feel has been understudied because it is too new. Online news use, blogging with a sub-study on female blogs with a special emphasis on mom blogs will be included in this project.
Part of the project will be completed in time to be used as my final for my class in digital media theory but I want to work with all of the data beyond that deadline. The blog survey will be closed on December 6. I'll begin to make results available through the MotherPie blog beginning the end of January.
I really appreciate the support of the blogosphere community in helping me develop the survey and provide me with ideas to include in the research.
