Bloggers Rule!

Blogging has now reached the mainstream with 80% Americans knowing what one is and almost 50% having visited one according to a new study.

Of those who visit blogs, about half visit the same ones regularly and almost half of older Americans have read one. Most bloggers are women & readers tend to visit once a month. Almost half of bloggers click on ads on these blogs.

Yet these readers have not deserted other sources of information which makes me wonder why some newspapers still hold them anathema.

"When asked about the types of information they get from blogs, 65% said they get opinions, while 39% get news and 38% get entertainment."

8% of Americans have their own blogs.

Blogging (not to mention bloggers) are just plain cool!
