How Many Blogs?


On Saturday I'm going to talk to a huge company about the pros (and cons) of social media, networking and advertising in places like Facebook and Twitter. I thought it'd be interesting to take them a small sampling of what I could find on short notice. Leave your answers in the comments.

1. Do you blog? (if you are so inclined, could you leave your url(s))
1a. If yes, how many blogs do you have?
1b. Do you accept sponsors or do reviews of companies?
2. Do you have a Twitter account? (if you want, you can leave this info too!)
2a. If yes, do you follow companies or just people?
3. Do you have a Facebook account?
3a. Do you 'like' or 'friend' companies?
4. Do you live in Utah?


Thanks for your help in answering these questions!!!
