Blogging Picking Up Steam

Check out these quotes from an article posted on
A new report out by a leading Internet research company has revealed that fully 30 percent of American Internet users visited blogs during the first quarter of 2005.

According to the report, Behaviors of the Blogosphere (PDF file), from comScore Networks, almost 50 million--or one in six--Americans spent at least some time on blogs during that time frame. That's a 45 percent rise over the year before.

"I see blogs as an important emerging piece of the media landscape," said Rick Bruner, who helped get the comScore study off the ground but who is now with DoubleClick. "But they're not well understood yet."

"People are being engaged by blogs and doing more Web reading by following the links from the blogs," Marks said. "Once they discover Web logs as a thing to read, it also becomes a discovery tool. That's something we believe, but it's nice to have some confirmation of that."
