For each of the following 40 ideas,

  • [HEARD OF: 1 pt] Give yourself 1 point if you’ve heard of the site or the person or the idea and can explain why it is significant in the context of the blogosphere (but haven’t commented or blogged about it)
  • [COMMENTED: 2 pts] Give yourself 2 points if you’ve commented about it on someone else’s blog (but haven’t blogged it yourself)
  • [BLOGGED: 3 pts] Give yourself 3 points if you’ve blogged about it
