Year Of The Blog

Folks, it seems that our little hobbies are getting main stream attention. Yep, that’s right, 2004 was declared the “Year of The Blog”.

Pew polled Internet users and found that blog readership increased 58% between February and November 2004. And by November, 27% of 120 million adult Internet users claimed to visit blogs, up from 17% nine months earlier.

Not only that, but Pew also found that 7% of online users, or 8 million Americans, had created their own blogs, up from 3% in 2002. And more and more Americans are posting comments on blogs. STORY

OK – so if more and more Americans are posting comments on blogs, why then, do I seem to get less and less every day?

  1. Nobody gets fewer comments than I do – but lots of visitors. And yet I visit some blogs, read what they’ve written, and I have nothing to say about it – yet 40 others decided they needed to comment. I don’t know why and I don’t know why not.

  2. I don’t get a ton of comments either and based on my logs, most people come to my site trying to figure out how to change the headlight bulb on their car. Nevertheless, I KNOW a few people read it regularly and that motivates me to post!
