The Right Answers to the Blog Quiz

Tony had a link to this quiz on his blog, so I thought I'd give it a shot.
Well, You Know What a Blog Is...

You got 4/8 correct!

But, truthfully, most blogs probably bore you.

I mainly made educated guesses to get half the questions correct, and several were "blogging terms" that I've never heard, so I think they're specific to one service or another.

Anyway, the question then was: what are the real answers? They didn't show which questions I'd gotten wrong.

The answers (determined by trial and error) after the break:

1. Which of these blogging services started first?
=> * LiveJournal
* Blogger
* Myspace
* Diaryland
2. What does RSS stand for?
* Ready Set Syndication
* Really Simple Site
* Rich Site Syndication
=> * Really Simple Syndication
3. If you get "dooced," what happens?
* People out your protected entries in public
* Your significant other finds your blog and
breaks up with you
=> * You get fired from your job because of your blog
* An embarrassing post forces you to shut down your blog
4. Which of the following is not a kind of blog?
* Moblog
* Audioblog
* Splog
=> * Nogblog
5. Which of the following celebrities does not have an
online blog or journal?

* William Shatner
6. In what year was the word "blog" first used?

7. In 2005, what percentage of US teens had blogs?

had the most blogs?

  • I got 3/8 as well. How long did it take you to trial and error?

  • Not long -- I just kept backing up a screen, changing one answer, and then seeing if the count changed. On most of the questions I managed to get it right (improve my score) on my second guess.
