  1. Greetings,

    I am writing to follow-up regarding the survey about your blog that you
    completed approximately six weeks ago. That survey was the first of two
    surveys. I am writing about the second and final survey.

    I greatly appreciate your participation in the initial survey, and hope that you
    will participate in the second (and final) survey. The second survey is shorter
    and should take between 10 and 15 minutes to complete. At the end of the survey
    we explain in detail the goals of the project. The second survey can be found

    at the following link: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s/324062/bloggingii

    If you have any questions about the second survey or the project more generally,
    please let me know.

    Thanks for your consideration.
