Mirror, Mirror...

Apparently, according to two separate studies, bloggers are happier because they feel a closer and/or deeper connection to their friends and family.

(See Peter Sagal of "Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me!" for the view of friends and family:

javascript:NPR.Player.openPlayer(101284777,null,%20null,%20NPR.Player.Action.PLAY_NOW,%20NPR.Player.Type.STORY,%20NPR.Player.Mode.LIVE) )

But, bloggers are also more likely to be depressed, anxious, and stressed--thus their purpose for turning to blogs. Apparently they tend to have highly cultivated super-egos, which find voice in their blogs--directed either internally, or externally.
