Very interesting read….
MediaPost> Blog readers are just a bunch of kids with too many opinions, too little money, and too much time on their hands. Think again. According to a survey of blog readers conducted by Weblog ad network Blogads, they’re older and wealthier than what’s portrayed by their stereotype. What’s more: many buy and donate online, spend on books and magazines, and have clicked on a blog ad. In what may be the first survey of blog readers as an emerging demographic, Blogads asked 17,159 blog site visitors about their age, income, media consumption, online spending habits, and political affiliations during a two-day period in May. It turns out that 61 percent of blog readers who participated in the survey are over 30 years of age.
