      Thanks for all the input and feedback. This was my first attempt at
      anything like this, so please excuse my inexperience.

      It wasn't our intention to "sell" blogging -- but since many of the
      questions focus on blogging, there seems to be an inherent skew in
      that direction. We tried to add answer choices that "rejected"
      blogging wherever possible, in order to compensate for this. We also
      could have included more questions focusing on other areas, maybe more
      traditional news platforms, but that would have made the survey even
      longer.

      So a few questions:

      If you're researching a specific, somewhat "niche" topic, how do you
      make a survey that's completely objective?
      Do you need to add questions that take the survey in a different
      direction for more balance?
      Is it okay to base your research on the idea that your respondents are
      aware of the topic? (in this case a lot or PR/marketing pros who work
      with blogs regularly)
