Blog Readership

According to a 2004 survey by the Pew Internet & American Life Project, about 120 million U.S. adults use the Internet and about 32 million read blogs. However, only 38% of Internet users indicated they knew what the term blog means. A blog, a contraction of “web” and “log,” is an online diary that people post for others to read. Blog readers make up 27% of all Internet users. Many blogs allow readers to post their own comments.

  • 57% of bloggers are male.
