Poll: Your study abroad blog is the best

A survey published by the Pew Research Center, Tuesday confirmed suspicions that your study abroad blog is better than the rest of that garbage and you should definitely post again today.

The poll of 3,000 undergraduates determined that your blog is different.

“There’s that ‘it’ factor,” explained Dr. Paula Fraiser. “When you read this blog you just have to say, ‘Wow. You’re going to land a hell of a journalism job now.’ ”

The researchers found that your explanation of your long distance travel was by far the most compelling. Readers loved the way you described your foreign cuisine experiences and found your description of the metro both enlightening and a bit humorous.

“The post about the weather was the clincher,” Fraiser said. “No other blog has summarized the blueness of a sky quite that well. Also the post about a language mix-up! Classic!”

One reader, your mother, noted the quality design of the blog. “I love the background!” she said.

The site, published on a free blogging website with a cheesy pun title, was not without competition.

“There were almost 30,000 blogs in our study,” said Fraiser, “but at the end of the day, yours was simply the best. I can’t wait to see what you come up with next!”

A search for other readers of the blog came up fruitless.
