More Blog Stats

Another Blogging Survey's results are in. Some of the findings include:

* 4.12 million blogs in existence using the following blog clients: Blog-City, BlogSpot, Diaryland, LiveJournal, Pitas, TypePad, Weblogger and Xanga.

* 66.0% of blogs haven't been updated for at least 2 months. (thats 2.72 million abandoned blogs out of the above total)

* 1.09 million were one day blogs only with only posts on their first day

* Males are more likely to abandon blogs. Those writing long posts (on average) were less likely to abandon their blogs.

* The average active blog is updated once every 14 days.

* 92.4% of blogs were created by those under 30 years of age.

* 56% of blogs were created by females.

* Projected estimates see 5 million blogs by the end of 2003 and 10 million by the end of 2004.

Hmmm - so the average blog was started by a teenage girl, its likely to have been abandoned, probably only ever written in once. If she updates it, its probably only once a fortnight. But have no fear, there will be twice as many of them in just 15 months time.

That's a nice summary! I like the fact that 1.09 Million people started - blogged once, and then never did it again. Says something about our attention span I think.
