A First Cut At The Demographics Of Blogs

CyberAtlas is running some interesting numbers about who makes up the blogosphere. They say that “only” 2% of Internet users have created a blog, and “only” 4% read them. I put “only” in quotes because, if you accept CyberAtlas’ own estimates of net usage in the U.S., that means that almost 3.5 million Americans are blogging today, and almost 7 million more are active readers. That’s no small number no matter how you slice it, and the blog explosion is only just beginning.

Obligatory Disclaimer

If you think anything I write here represents the opinions of anybody but myself, you need more help than I can give you. The opinions are all mine, folks. Nobody else's. ESPECIALLY not my employer's.

If that's too hard to understand... well, I'm sorry. There's only so much I can do. I'm not a therapist, and I'm not a miracle worker. (Unless you consider staying employed in this economy a miracle.) I wish I could help you work through your delusional belief that I'm speaking for anyone else but myself. Honestly, I do. But in the end, that's a monkey you'll have to get off your back on your own. Sorry.
