Perhaps not surprisingly most bloggers are in their 20s and 30s, only 7%+ are aged 50 or more
What does surprise me is the gender split.
Sysomos says that 49.1% of bloggers are women….yet this contradicts both received wisdom and the state of the blogosphere report by Technorati last Autumn, which showed that 2/3 of bloggers are male.
How did Sysomos come up with such a different result? Is it that Syomos products only analyse blogs where there is a clear and declared biography, while Technorati’s research is more of a conventional survey (i.e one carried out and answered by humans).
