The true spread of people’s blogging motivations is represented more accurately, it seems to me, in this table from jeffbullas than in the Technocrati survey I mentioned yesterday – even though it is based on his own poll of only 492 people.
The top 5 in ranking order are.
- Share with others
- Self expression
- Put forward new ideas
Not surprisingly the number one reason is “passion” for their topic. In fact of all the top bloggers I know that I have reviewed and researched, this would have to be the number one reason for posting every day year after year.
Here is the full table. I like the fact that nine people are honest enough to say they blog not to change the world, but to pass the time!
