Number of bloggers growing

I often wonder if blogging has hit it's peak? I wonder if it is just this generation's CB Radio and will fade away leaving only a few of us writing these online diary thinga-ma-bobbers? I wonder if anyone other than my sweet, supportive sister-in-law in Minnesota ever reads my blog?

This article from ars technica says no. Blogging is not dead. At least not yet. Here are a few juicy items from the post.

  • 45% of the internet users surveyed have started a blog (up 14% since 2007)
  • Asia has the fastest growing population of bloggers (over 70% in several countries)
  • 63.5% of us keep a personal blog and most write about their daily life
  • 82% of those internet users watch online video (50% increase since 2006)
  • Americans would rather read blogs than make them (72% read blogs regularily)
So, I guess I am still going to teach my students how to set up and maintain a blog next year. That's a relief, I thought I might have to plans a few new lessons.

"Thats a Four-Ten Good Buddy. It's time to Get Gone and then Get Horizontal. Over and Out!"
