How Many Women Bloggers Are Out There?

I took these stats directly from the Social Media Buzz blog:

The research from BlogHer and Compass Partners showed some interesting statistics:

35% of women aged 18 to 75 participate in the blogosphere weekly.
Of women online 53% read blogs, 37% post comments to blogs and 28% write or update blogs.
Of women bloggers 58% post entries at least weekly, and of those who actively read blogs, 80% do so at least once per week.
Why women blog?
65% do it for fun
60% to express themselves
46% to get information
41% to stay up to date on family and friends
40% to connect with others
34% as a diary
28% participate in the blogosphere in order to connect with others.

Here's a place where Mom Bloggers go:

 







And here is a list of the Top 50 Mom Blogs.

With such a large percentage of women bloggers and blog readers, shouldn't your business be blogging-especially if your target market is women?

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
