Blogs

I don't have the sources on hand (and I'm also cross-referencing and crunching numbers - so sources don't match my numbers). Besides, statistics are never accurate anyway.

Globally:

Less than 8% of internet users read blogs. Of those who read blogs, about 28% read blogs at least once a week. Therefore, about 2% of internet users read blogs at least once a week.

Less than 40% of internet users know what a blog is.

[Unfortunately, there aren't enough statistics for me to work out other details Globally as I did for North America below.]

North America:

Less than 30% of internet users read blogs. Of those who read blogs, about 38% read blogs at least once a week. Therefore, about 11% of internet users read blogs at least once a week.

More than 75% of internet users know what a blog is.

More than 63% of internet users own blogs. However, more than 68% of bloggers never/rarely have their blog read.

Less than 19% of online teens own a blog and less than 38% of online teens read blogs. Therefore, about 13% of online teens that own a blog never/rarely have their blogs read (it is probably more).

I own two blogs but have given up on Livejournal and decided to just stick with a video blog... I was just about to make a topic like this. Can I put a link up to my first video blog post? or is that not allowed.

I love reading blogs learning about people is wonderful fun.

I keep a LiveJournal just because it's easier than keeping a written journal. I don't personally enjoy reading other people's bussiness, unless it's a close friend. Once in a while I go through and read some of my older entries, just for amusement. It's like reading someone else's writing.

The only blog I use is LiveJournal but most of the time it's not interesting stuff. It's nice to see though when I've had all of those good memories and such. It's something to reflect on :)

I kinda stopped with my blogging stuff since I noticed its a waste of my time so I am thinking about taking it down after I figure out a way to record everything in it. For future enjoyment of course XP

I have several, but mostly use my LiveJournal.

LJ=shipanda
Xanga=polaris_tsula (stopped posting, but still read)
IMVU=ephemral
DA=polarisfox (rarely use, rarely read)
FA=shipanda (used not often, read some)
FRAPPR=shipanda(I took it off my page early and never used it)

Every time I log into LJ I go through my friend's page and check up on everyone.
I skip most community post as they're mostly made of transgender/asexual/androgyne/SL stuff.
I read people's blogs, but I don't comment on much.

I guess I technicaly have a blog, http://gamerating.proboards53.com , but I doubt anyone reads it and I only update it if I have a subject I want to write down or if I need online notes, so it's very unregular.
