One in four Swedish bloggers have been harrassed

I read today that journalist Isobel Hadley-Kamptz decided to stop blogging, among other things because of all the negative comments and nasty emails she received. (Read more at Sigge’s blog.)

As some of you may know, I performed an online survey of 700 Swedish blog readers and bloggers recently and the report is almost finished. But I felt that I could give you a sneak preview to one of the questions – “Have you ever felt harrassed by what others have written about you on their blogs or in the comments on your blog?”.

One in four bloggers (25.2%) in the survey answer that they have felt harrassed. (Click to enlarge the picture)

– 5.9% answer “yes, several times”
– 19.3% answer “yes, at least once”
