Shocking Results in Blogger Survey!

I want a job writing tabloid headlines.

New from the Pew/Internet gang, comes Bloggers: A portrait of the internet’s new storytellers:

The ease and appeal of blogging is inspiring a new group of writers and creators to share their voices with the world.

A national phone survey of bloggers finds that most are focused on describing their personal experiences to a relatively small audience of readers and that only a small proportion focus their coverage on politics, media, government, or technology. Blogs, the survey finds, are as individual as the people who keep them. However, most bloggers are primarily interested in creative, personal expression – documenting individual experiences, sharing practical knowledge, or just keeping in touch with friends and family.

Gee, they needed a survey and research to come to that conclusion? Shocking! Heck, I could have told them that years ago…

That said, perhaps I will now read it ;-)
