I recently posted about "BaroBlogs: The Baromoter of Blogosphere", (crmmetrix, June 2006) (click here for French release, for English release) and was really impressed about the interest generated, I really want to thank you all for passing around, blogging, commenting, linking etc. Thanks!
As said, the next wave of BaroBlogs is planned for the second half of September 2006, with first results available October 2006. This time we will again "measure" the French Blogosphere but also the US one in order to compare the development and importance of two leading blogging countries.
I got inquiries about other countries as well, and also may want to include China to have an in depth look at how blogs impact information gathering and decision making there as well... But rather than drafting things alone, I am interested in hearing your views in terms:
- Which other key countries to include, to have the first of its kinds global comparative study about the importance of the blogosphere "globally"?
- Beyond the key questions and answers I raised in the June 06 edition, what other questions, insights you may find useful to have and include in the next wave?
- Finally, last but not least how you can help and contribute to "field" such benchmark studies beyond US and France. Any ideas are welcome, the thinking being to create a benchmark quarterly reference point for the whole media/marketing/blogsophere...in other words provide One source of insights about the blogosphere that everyone can share and relate to.
Please feel free to openly comment, provide ideas, insights, directly on the blog or feel free to emails as well at lflores AT crmmetrix.com !
Thanks in advance for your help and insights... and remember I am always listening, at least trying...
