My Blog’s Pound of Flesh

Just for the record (and since everybody’s doing it), my blog owns 18.25 percent of me. I expected it would be much worse. I can’t imagine how PZ could have gotten 6.25 percent, given that he posts much more frequently than I do. He must be super efficient….

(If you’re confused what I’m talking about, see here for the latest quiz that’s making the rounds on ScienceBlogs).

    I don’t really have blog in sense you do, however, I have discussion page on website. I took survey and it came out with “blog” or I suppose “website” owning about 18.25% of me. I have been reading your book since about 4:00 pm this afternoon (MST) and like the review said, I’m not feeling better, but you’ve given me information which I can use. Thanks, Chris, for your work.

    That’s what I said…I think PZ’s quiz was broken or something. I got 18.75% myself.

    The curious thing is that I find the more active I am in real life, the easier it is to blog. If I spend a few hours on The Machine doing nothing but bloggery, I dry up and don’t want to do it any more. Spend a few hours reading papers or working with students or whatever, though, and then when I sit down, boom, it just erupts out of me.

    That’s strangely arousing, PZ. I must shower now.

    I got 6.25 and only answered one question “yes” (own domain name.) I only blog about once a month though.

    Note that all the questions are about attitude / what else you do with your life, not really time. If you just blog because it’s your (unpaid) job or just on one interest you could come out quite low, however many hours you spend.
