Blogging Quizzes Revisited

Caramel Popcorn

I was bored enough this morn­ing to check my own Blog­ging Quiz Repos­i­to­ry only to find that one exter­nal­ly host­ed quiz was already dead (prob­a­bly had been for years) and two quizzes led to four-oh-four (prob­a­bly had been for years).

There’s noth­ing I can do to revive the dead quiz since I don’t real­ly remem­ber what it’s all about (though I wish I did because it was the very first quiz I cre­at­ed) but not only have I made the oth­er two quizzes avail­able again, I also updat­ed the ques­tions. I doubt most blog­gers these days would know Blogdex and MetaFil­ter so I replaced their instances with Tech­no­rati and Digg.

The updat­ed quizzes are Are You A Blo­ga­holic? and Are You A Hit-Obsesed Weblog­ger? Sad­ly I lost the old data­base files so the sta­tis­tics had to be restart­ed from zero. I scored 58% in the first quiz and 40% in the sec­ond one. Take the quizzes and let me know how you did! C’mon, humour me.

I was also think­ing of updat­ing the Weblog­ger Twin quiz but then decid­ed not to because I’m too lazy. :) Inter­est­ing­ly, out of some 2,043 peo­ple who had accessed the quiz, the major­i­ty (21.4%) got me as their twin. I guess I’m not real­ly as unique as I think I am.

  1. Hi Fir­da,
    I love your site because it is philo­soph­i­cal and real but also pret­ty. I have a par­tic­u­lar love of pho­tog­ra­phy and I think I found it through Google a while back when look­ing for the ‘best design blogs’.
    I am a fash­ion design­er and writer based in Lon­don and I have just pub­lished a blog myself – it only went up yes­ter­day. You can find it at I am writ­ing it to raise aware­ness of artists and arti­sans across the globe and as you will under­stand, the more peo­ple that read it, the bet­ter.
    I have put a link to your site up there and I would love a rec­i­p­ro­cal one on your site, that is if you like it. I
    I look for­ward to hear­ing from you.
    Thanks in advance,
    Cre­ative Direc­tor
