Blog stats

Blog stats: I’m on record about what I think of statistics and how reporters just can’t help selectively applying them to analysis of topics about which they know. So it should come with little surprise what I think (not much) of the blog stats from Perseus being volleyed around today. That said, however, I do agree 100% with the following:

The average blogger is a teen-age girl who updates her friends and classmates on her life, with words and spellings not quite as informal as instant messaging, Perseus said. Updates are done twice a month, Perseus said.

I agree, I can admit now, because months ago I turned over the operation of the rexblog to several teenage girls who each make two posts a month.
