This paper presents the results of a survey of economics bloggers. The survey attempted to assess the characteristics of these bloggers, their blogging activity, and factors affecting their motivations for blogging. Based on the results, bloggers are also separated into groups of academics and non-academics, and those with and without commercial elements on their blogs, and differences in activity and motivations between these groups are tested for. The relationship between time spent and blog posts written is also estimated.
