If You Think Blogging Is Big, You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet

As with any other technology, blogging enhances, rather than replaces, our existing way of life. Hidden away in this fascinating article on how teens are blogging is this remarkable fact:

"According to the research firm Perseus, 52 percent of all bloggers are teenagers, and an additional 40 percent are in their 20s."

And how about this one:

"At Evergreen, about 200 students -- or roughly one out of eight -- keep blogs at one popular site, Xanga.com. The term Xanga has even become part of school lingo -- students refer to their blogs as 'my Xanga.'"

I don't know what effects blogging will eventually have, but it's clearly here to stay.
