Life is but a Blog

You name it, and someone’s probably blogging about it. Tim Engle tells us some interesting statistics about bloggers. For example, did you know that:

“More than 90 percent of bloggers are younger than 30, with more women blogging than men. Worldwide (mostly the United States), between the end of 2003 and the end of this year, the number of blogs is expected to double, from 5 million to 10 million (according to Perseus).”

“Rebecca Blood, author of ‘The Weblog Handbook’ and a blogger since 1999 (rebeccablood.net), says there’s really no way to know how many blogs exist. She is certain, however, that the phenomenon is “still in the upward trend”, BUT ‘most people still don’t know what a weblog is’.”

“One of the first articles about bloggers described us as relentless communicators, and I think that might be right,” Blood said by phone from San Francisco. Most people start blogs after reading blogs, she says.”

“People have been telling each other stories for thousands of years. It started around campfires in caves. … Now people in offices gather around water coolers and coffee pots and talk about the things that matter to them. All a weblog does is, it moves that conversation onto the Web”… more at Central Daily.
