Blog Post No. 400: The Attempted Bloggery Quiz

There's not that much news to report here at this 400th blog post. In June, blog readership dipped below 10,000 page views per month for the first time this year and July will likely be the same, but I don't think that's a huge deal. What is important is my presentation now of the first-ever Attempted Bloggery Quiz!
Look, there are two types of blogs: those with quizzes and those without. If you're an avid follower, an occasional follower, or even if you're not sure how you ended up on this page, I'm hoping you will take a shot at the brand new Attempted Bloggery Quiz. Answers will appear tomorrow. Test your knowledge of absolutely crucial blog trivia.
