Study on Political Blogging

 I was asked to fill out a survey on political blogging. Some of you may find it interesting as well.

CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS
The Political Communication Research Lab (GRCP) at Laval University would like to invite bloggers to participate in a ground-breaking study of the Canadian political blogosphere (Research Ethics Board file number : 2010-289/16-12-2010).
Participants must be at least 18 years old, must live in Canada, must have the right to vote in Canada and must have a blog where they mostly or frequently post (more than once a week) on Canadian, international or Quebec politics.
The participants will complete an online survey on their socio-demographic profile, their political practices and their motivations for engaging in political blogging. The survey is made up of 76 questions, the majority of which are closed-ended. However, there are also open-ended questions that will allow participants to freely reflect on the themes of the survey. The survey can be completed in about 30 minutes.
All participants are invited to complete the online survey available from the website of the Political Communication Research Lab: www.grcp.com.ulaval.ca/blogscan_en
The survey will be open until 28 Feb. 2011. For more information about the study please contact :

If they want your opinion and time, they should be prepared to pay you for it. "Political Communication Research Lab" ... research, right, political communication research. What those liberal art types will think of next to justify their existence! Wait a minute, I'm off to the kitchen now to do some late night snacking research, then I'm going to bed to some dream research, then I'm going to wake-up in the morning and do some get-dressed-and-go-to-work research ... :)

Is it just people with blogs that can participate or can commenters on political blogs, participate as well.

I'm not entirely sure.
