Get money for completing survey

A group of students from NTU's Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information are doing a survey on blogging habits and people's relationship with their blog readers. You can access previous studies done here.

To qualify for participation in this study, you must be a blogger who regularly maintains a personal blog (i.e. updates a blog that is primarily about you at least once a month).

Your participation in this study is voluntary and you may withdraw from the survey at any point. However, your participation is very important to the study and they hope you will complete the survey. They also hope you can help them publicise this in your blog and get your friends to participate as well [which is basically what I'm doing here].

As a token of appreciation for your time, they will be giving away US$50 each to 3 lucky respondents. However, only completed surveys are entitled to enter the lucky draw. Winners will be notified via email and the money will be delivered through PayPal.

I have to make a PayPal account? And only three LUCKY respondents? So everyone won't receive a token of appreciation, eh? That's what I thought. Hell, I've never been that lucky. Once I was in this lucky draw with only three entries out of which one was going to win 500 hours of Internet from an ISP in Pakistan. The second prize was 100 hours. I got neither.

But in order to help research and development, I'll still take the survey when I've got some extra time. There should be some things in life one doesn't only do for money [but rather, to kill time!]
