Thanks to all who participated in the recent study on creativity and blogging.
The pseudo-experiment was part of my larger study of the OODA loop applied to education, in this case to creativity.
I have only started to analyze the data. Before I launched this survey, I assumed that affective "gut" attitudes would be a better predictor than cognitive "thoughtful" attitudes, with respect to blogging. I also assumed that behaviors that signify purposeful practice on blogging would be directly related to recognition as a blogger, as measured through Technorati rank. Both these findings appear to be supported by the data.
As part of my dissertation proposal, I will suggest a second, larger test (using a different sample pool), to provide further support.
Over the next few days and weeks, I will post more description and analysis of the data. Eventually what I write here will find its way into my dissertation proposal (hopefully!). But for now,
You made this possible.
