Inside the Blogger's Brain

A humorous look at the different personality types found in the blogosphere. From the Virgin to the Social Whore, there are as many different personalities as there are blogs (or so it seems). In this presentation we look at the different motivations and personality types that draw people to blogging, how to spot the various personalities and some tips to avoid developing blog "personality disorders" yourself.
