US workers will spend the equivalent of 551,000 years reading blogs in 2005 according to an analysis by Advertising Angels.
That’s 35 million workers, spending 3.5 hours a week or the equivalent of 2.3 million jobs.
Only about 25% is related to work according to a scoring system Ad Age developed. All business blogs are work, 50% of tech and media blogs relate to work, and 25% of political/news blogs are work-related.
Well, you can’t pretend that reading a newspaper is work, but if you’re on the computer reading blogs it very well could be.
