Blogging WORLD!

Most bloggers are women

KUALA LUMPUR: If you are a Malaysian and you have your own blog, the odds are that you’re a woman, aged 25 or under. Sixty-four per cent of local bloggers are female and 74% of them are in that age group.

This is a finding of an international online survey involving more than 25,000 Microsoft MSN web portal visitors in August and September.
The survey, Blogging Asia: A Windows Live Report, was conducted in Hong Kong, India, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand.

It found that 41% of Malaysians who went online also blogged. Malaysia’s bloggers primarily do it for entertainment and to share their lives with family and friends. “Blogging has moved into the mainstream in Asia and Malaysia, and has become a popular way to stay in touch with family and friends,” said Grant Watts, Microsoft South-East Asia general manager for online services group.
The survey found that 56% of Malaysians blogged to express passionately held views, while 49% blogged to keep friends and family updated.
Some 34% just like having a little corner of cyberspace to call their own.
Only a small number, about 3%, said they were practising “citizen journalism.”

As for blog-reading habits, 63% of respondents said they read blogs for entertainment, while technology, travel and music were the three most widely read blog topics across Asia and in Malaysia.The majority of blog readers, 81%, are most interested in blogs written by friends or family.

Far behind in popularity are blogs by celebrities, pop stars and workmates. Blogs by business leaders and politicians garner the least interest.

Blog readers said they looked for good writing and plenty of pictures.

...and so...ladies and gentlemen... ladies likes to write... ladies like to put thoughts, views and passions into words - now better - can be viewed all over the world!! - so is it a waste of time...blogging...definitely no! bloggers dont just write..they also read...The first time i discovered blog..i'd like WOW! - and that was just 6 months ago...hehe...better late than never... and so... Men... less of you according to the survey are bloggers - funny - I c a lot of men blogging - n they are more creative in posting - sorry girls - thats from what i c...maybe i havent seen enuff..

So... theres also an issue of quality blogs - well for me good bloggers are when they keep the blog updated every now and then - the better one - everyday - with interesting posts or pictures regardless of how the write it - janji i can comprehende..

Now as you can see i put a little bit of new touch here and there in my blog...these past few days i was meddling with the HTML codes...trying things that i may want to 'stick' on my blogs -sometimes freak me out when i pasted wrong stuff and change my blog into haywire...nasib baik tere kungfu - change it back to normal...pheww..hehe..and I am still testing here and there - so if u click anywhere and didnt get to go anywhere - then it is still under construction heheee or I was still tryin to fig out what the toot has happened... or not happen..

I also dream of makin money out of this - but i think i have a few things to learn and change - errr...not a few...a lotttttt and i might change the title even...or create another blog.. later later... I was actually been bombarded via email ( due to my curiosity - by registring to one of the internet business experts ) on how to make money out of this...Still thinking whether it is necessary just yet - as i barely have enough viewers/traffic...the process is slow...slowwwly but surely...

so care to vote on my mini poll ... good ka..terrible ka...

Yeah...where's Datin? She hasn't been blogging for ages.

Maybe it has to do with the Dear Diary thingy that most women indulge tend not to write down their thoughts...maybe men think less than women do..haha..

Come to think of it, there's truth in always get into all sorts of problems for not thinking beforehand...

I wrote something similar a long time ago. Another fact is that most of them happen to be single. Any correlation?

asam - Agreed: single women mostly hv all d time to blog - blogging actually not easy - hv to think think think sometimes what 2 write - unless u have d list n read the news everyday n would like 2 comment about the issues, have to blogroll some more - takes a lot of time. Bloggers that i usually 'attached' to is rarely single...
