Questionnaire

My name is Martyn Singleton. I am an artist and currently researching
“blogs” for a project I am hoping to have commisioned. The project is
exploring the underlying compulsions within blogging and the varied outcomes
within society at large. For the moment however, I am hoping to ascertain
people’s motivations through a simple questionnaire.

1. Why do you keep a blog?
Because I get bored easily. Because I love the web. Because I like to learn from visitor feedback. Because I like the visitor interaction. Because, let’s face it, I suffer from a narcissus complex.

2. If you couldn’t keep a blog would you have a “paper” diary and/or do you
already keep a one and if you have an “offline” diary, why both?
No, no, and again: no.

3. Who do you imagine is typically reading your blog?
People that want free FZ boot downloads. Also, people that wish to have my child. Plus: people that want free FZ boot downloads. Did I mention people that want free FZ boot downloads?

4. Have you ever had any “unusual experiences” through contact/comment on
your blog? Describe.
Yes. People that wish to have my child. Also: people that love my devilish wit. Surreal.

5. Does blogging bring people closer together? why?
Music oriented blogs like mine are hubs that bring together people interested in the same topic (read: people that want free FZ boot downloads). Whether I bring people closer together, I do not know. I hope I do.

6. What role do “blogs” fulfill in society and how do you imagine they will
be remembered in the future?
What role: they are an independent voice in a worldwide web that has become overly commercial. They reduce the web back to what it was intended to be: a means of communication rather than a means to sell dog food. How will they be remembered? Erh… they gave out free FZ boots?

7. If you could be any animal which would you choose?
A yellow mudshark.

8. What is your favourite colour?
Red. Entirely too much red.

9. Please state your favourite date, ie: 14th July 1863.
May 4th 1964.

    I like blogs because they help me find some communist bastard and I stomp on his face ’til he don’t move no more. There’s a lot of communist bastards with blogs, dig? Not enough waitresses with blogs though. http://www.opelyouhotlittlebitch.com/blog/ is 404.
