Hello there. I am Terry and I am a full-time undergraduate based in Singapore. I take photos, write a blog and design websites.

And no, I'm not a teddy bear.

Interesting Blog Statistics

Perseus Development Corp. randomly surveyed 3,634 blogs on eight leading blog-hosting services to develop a model of blog populations. Based on this research, Perseus estimates that 4.12 million blogs have been created on these services: Blog-City, BlogSpot, Diaryland, LiveJournal, Pitas, TypePad, Weblogger and Xanga.

Blogger – Try this out for ultimate blogging experience!

Here are the horrifying statistics:
(1) 2.72 million blogs of surveyed blogs had not been updated in two months
(2) 1.09 million blogs were one-day wonders, with no postings on subsequent days
(3) The average duration of the remaining 1.63 million abandoned blogs was 126 days
(4) A surprising 132,000 blogs were abandoned after being maintained a year or more
(3) Males were more likely than females to abandon blogs
(4) Active blogs were updated on average every 14 days.
(5) Fewer than 50,000 were updated daily.

(1) Even as MP3 sharing and instant messaging began with teenagers, teenagers have created the majority of blogs. Blogs are currently the province of the young, with 92.4% of blogs created by people under the age of 30.

(2)Females are slightly more likely than males to create blogs, accounting for 56.0% of hosted blogs.

(3) Based on the rapid growth rate demonstrated by the leading services, we expect the number of hosted blogs created to exceed five million by the end of 2003 and to exceed ten million by the end of 2004.

Oops, looke like blogging does create lots of abandoned blogs wondering around the Internet! Hope that you don’t abandon your blog =)
