Just Wondering
By Mike Rappaport

David Bernstein writes that
    “Those of us in touch with the blogging world seem to sometimes forget that most people, at least most people over age 25, never look at blogs, and often don't know what they are.”
That is certainly my experience. In fact, knowledge of blogs appears to be heavily correlated with age. A 30 year old is much more likely to look at blogs than a 50 year old.

Does anyone know of any opinion polls or other statistics on blog readership or awareness? For example, what percentage of 30 year olds read blogs? Or have even heard of blogs? I have been conducting my own informal survey, but a formal poll would be interesting.
