I find it rather funny that I'm the only one I know who blogs. I'm not exactly a "cutting edge" kind of girl. Then again, at our house we were on the 'net before most people when dial-up was wayyyyyyyyy slow and no one knew what a gigabyte was.

I started blogging because I was inspired by my sister-in-law's blog. And our brother-in-law has one, too. Two of my friends in Kentucky have blogs, but I spent an entire weekend with one of them and neither of us mentioned our blogs. Then the other one tagged us both for a meme and there we were. Most of our friends and family still look on it as a bit of a novelty. The fact that 59% of bloggers have been blogging more than 2 years is VERY interesting.

I'm surprised that so many bloggers are male. I wonder if that accounts for how often someone blogs. I find that the most regular blogger are women. But maybe I'm biased: I enjoyed attending a Pasadena (CA) area women bloggers tea this weekend.

I have several friends who have blogs, and they couldn't be more different. I've noticed a change, too, when we meet together. There is a deepening to our relationships and conversations that couldn't happen unless we read one another's thoughts and musings. Interesting that it is such a powerful medium. Or is that media?

Interesting. Is the study based on the US alone? I think it depends on what part of the world you're talking about -- like in my country (the Philippines), a big part of the population don't even have access to a computer, though internet cafes are mushrooming even in the countryside. But they are few and far between.

"Paper newspapers" are still very much alive here :-)

Also, this is just my theory but I think most bloggers here are male because girls and women seem more interested in talking with people face-to-face and simply being with one another as opposed to interacting via a screen.
