myBlogS 2009 - Update

The myBlogS 2009 survey has been running for two weeks now, and I'm really happy with the response so far - 329 responses!! :-D :-D

So, to everyone who has filled it out so far…

I was so stressed at the beginning! Just hoping that it would reach at least 100, which my supervisor had said was the absolute minimum.

But it's not over! It's open until the 10th April, and the target is 500 responses.

It's important to have a lot of responses because no one knows exactly who all the bloggers are in Malaysia, so you can’t do a stratified sample (e.g. for Malaysia, you make sure you have a 50/50 divide of male and female, apprx. 60% Malay, certain percentages of old and young, etc.) that would help to make sure the results reflect the overall population of the Malaysian blogosphere. So the more people who answer, the less likely that there will be bias from a particular section of the blogosphere.

I can't tell you any of the results so far, because that might influence the results if you haven’t done the survey yet, but I can say this:
Saya memohon maaf di atas ketiadaan versi Bahasa Malaysia untuk borang kajiselidik ini kerana tidak mempunyai kemampuan serta pengetahuan untuk penterjemahan. Saya berterima kasih jika anda mencuba dan kerjasama serta jawapan anda amatlah saya hargai.

Seriously, I wish I could have it in Chinese and Tamil too, but I just can't do it now :-( I hope that maybe in future I'll be able to collaborate with someone to redo it in other languages.

And it's not just for bloggers, but for anyone who reads Malaysian blogs.

A big shout out and Thank You! to everyone who has been kind enough to spread the word about the survey - by email, or on their blog:

*Update 31/03/09*: • Itulah Aku: Malaysian Blog Survey
Malaysian Blog Survey: if picture not working, go to

myBlogS 2009 - Malaysian Blog Survey now open!

• Who are Malaysian bloggers?

• Why do bloggers blog?

• Is monetisation changing the Malaysian blogosphere?

How many blogs would a blogging blogger blog if a blogger's blogging could blog blogs?

These are the questions I am trying to answer for a PhD in Monash University Sunway Campus. But of course, the best people to answer these questions are bloggers and blog readers, which is why I designed this survey. :-)

You can read more about my research here, and throughout this blog.

It's for all Malaysian bloggers and everyone who reads Malaysian blogs. Have Your Say about the Malaysian blogosphere!

It will only take you 10-15 minutes and, to thank you for your time, you get a chance to win a pair of Platinum Movie Suite tickets (or similar service in a cinema near you). There are two pairs for the first two participants chosen, and five runners-up will each get regular cinema vouchers for two.

I'll be posting the results on this blog, and the more people who do the survey, the better it will reflect what bloggers and readers really think about the Malaysian blogosphere. Please help by mentioning it in your blog or telling your friends :-) (Nuffnangers can also help by Nanging this post :-))

If you like, you can spread the word by putting one of a choice of banners or sidepanels on your blog - check them out here.

The survey will remain open until the 10th April, 2009 - but don't hesitate...
