Blogs Are Like Assholes. Everybody's Got One. And They All Stink.
The Pew Internet & American Life Project has released a big new study about blogging.
The bad news: Twelve million Americans (8 percent of Internet users) have blogs and 57 million (39 percent of Internet users) read the damn things. The main subject of 37 percent of blogs are a given blogger's "life and experiences." Fifty-two percent of bloggers are seeking to "express" themselves "creatively."
The good news: Only 11 percent of blogs focus on "politics and government."--Nick Gillespie
