Personality of a Blogger
What interested most people at the conference, was that I had gathered personality information on bloggers.

There has been work on the gender and age of bloggers, but I'm not sure anyone has data like mine.

Do you think bloggers are natural Extraverts? Are they highly conscientious? Which of these traits, if any, do you think reflects the personality of a blogger? And why?
