Metro say Britain is Going Blog Crazy

20,000 Brits are Blogging every day

I love the way that Metro describe a blog: "Britain is going blog crazy, creating a staggering 85,000 new online diaries every day, according to a study. Blogs are websites or part of a website that someone can use to air their views on a chosen topic. This can take the form of a rant about politics or just an expression of everyday frustrations with life. The word blog is a shortened form of 'weblog'. And even allowing for the fact that many 'bloggers' are serial bloggers - creating three or four new sites a week - it still means around 20,000 people a day are joining the trend."

Britain Going Blog Crazy - Metro Article

I don't think that serial bloggers create three or four new sites a week and perhaps they are getting confused with blog posts. However, we had an interesting chat in the office about it yesterday (my new job is very closely linked to blogging), and we also thought it was interesting that lastminute.com had actually sponsored the research. There's nothing on their website about it that is obvious to me, but perhaps we can assume that they may be about to jump on the blogging bandwagon. After all, travel blogs are very popular and it might make sense for lastminute and other travel companies to offer their travellers a blog facility.
