Pew says blogs growing

According to the Pew Internet & American Life Project, blog readership went way up in 2004. A January report using November data says:

  • 27% of adult U.S. Internet users read blogs (up from 17% in February). The number of blog readers is increasing faster than the number of blog creators.
  • 12% have posted or commented on a blog.
  • 7% have created a blog.
  • 5% use RSS aggregators or XML readers.
  • However, more than 62% of Internet users said they don’t know what a blog is.
