Survey: One-sixth of U.S. adults read blogs

The Pew Internet & American Life Project this week released new data on blogs and blogging. The survey finds that 25 percent of Internet users and 16 percent of all U.S. adults say the read blogs.

Nine percent of Internet users say they have created blogs, the survey reported, which translates to six percent of the entire U.S. adult population (Internet users and non-users alike). That means that one out of every 20 people in the U.S. — 11 million Americans, the survey estimates — has a blog, and one out of six — 32 million Americans — reads blogs.
