44% Of Online-Americans Have Read Political Blogs.

The Wall Street Journal released the results of a survey about blog readership:

Two-fifths of Americans who are online have read a political blog, and more than a quarter read them once a month or more, according to a recent Harris Interactive poll.

Still, 56% of the public has never read a political blog and only 7% of online adults have posted a comment, according to the poll.

Of online adults who have posted comments on a political blog, 21% have posted 10 times or more in the past year. Half have posted between two and five times and 20% have posted only once.

People who identify themselves as Liberals are mostly likely to post comments to political blogs (28%); Moderates (17%) and Republicans (17%) were least likely.

Some other interesting tidbits:

1. Men have read political blogs more than women, to the tune of 48% - 40%.

2. Twice as many men read blogs on a daily basis (but, at 6% - 3%, it is difficult to really make that statement authoritatively).

3. Somewhat predictably, among those with a high school education or less, two-thirds have never read political blogs. College graduates, meanwhile, read blogs far more often.

The most significant aspect of the survey is that it reveals the yet-to-be-achieved growth potential of blogs. Blogging is still in its infancy; there is incredible room to grow. There is also a mad scramble for all those new readers out there, a competition between and among blogs to establish their blogging brand. Eventually, in addition to the so-called "mainstream media" (or MSM), we may be talking about the MSB (mainstream bloggers).

In the meantime, the mad dash for loyal readers is on.

Do you think men have read more political blogs than I have? It is rather interesting because when I speak to some of me female friends they are rather clueless! I can't stomach the main stream media. I am so glad I have found WILLisms.com! I also get my news from Townhall.com:Conservative! It is one that I believe Willisms.com made me aware of...Of course WILLisms.com is still my favorite blog of all.

WILLisms.com I have found the most wonderful article by a lady named: Phyllis Schlafly. The article is "Next we should starve the courts" you really need to read it! I think quite possibly she is the most persuasive and gifted person.
