Blogisms: The Good, the Bad, and the Ridiculous – take the survey

Paul, · Categories: General

The Lulus who are also sponsoring the Lulu Blooker Prize (for which I am Chair of Judges) alert us to their Survey and Prizes:

“BLOG”, “BLOOK”, “BLEADER” AND “BLAUTHOR”
– WHICH IS THE UGLIEST, OR COOLEST, BLOGGING TERM OF THEM ALL?

WIN A FREE ISBN OR PRIZE-WINNING BOOK BY TELLING US WHAT YOU THINK!

This year marks the tenth anniversary of the invention of the word “blog”, the fifth of the word “blook” (books based on blogs or websites), and the second of the Lulu Blooker Prize–the first literary prize for blooks. To mark this historic occasion, we’re asking what YOU think of all the wonderful–or gruesome?–new words spawned by the “blogosphere” (there’s another one) and by the web as a whole.

Do you love ‘em or hate ‘em? And which ones do you love or hate most?

Let us know by answering six pairs of mulitple-choice questions–and qualify to be one of FIVE LUCKY WINNERS picked at random who’ll be able to choose to receive either:

a. A copy of each of the three winning blooks in the 2007 Lulu Blooker Prize–named 14 May, 2007 (total value to be determined).
Or…
b. A free ISBN for their own Lulu-produced book ($99.95 value).

Here’s the Survey Link.
