There is this survey that says most of Malaysian bloggers are women and should be under the age of 25. Both criteria also not applicable to me .....Obviously I m not a woman and I m also not under the age of 25 (altho i very much wish to still remain under the age of 25) so i concluded that I m not a Malaysian blogger lol!
Most bloggers are women
KUALA LUMPUR: If you are a Malaysian and you have your own blog, the odds are that you’re a woman, aged 25 or under.
Sixty-four per cent of local bloggers are female and 74% of them are in that age group.
This is a finding of an international online survey involving more than 25,000 Microsoft MSN web portal visitors in August and September.
The survey, Blogging Asia: A Windows Live Report, was conducted in Hong Kong, India, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand.
It found that 41% of Malaysians who went online also blogged.
Malaysia’s bloggers primarily do it for entertainment and to share their lives with family and friends.
“Blogging has moved into the mainstream in Asia and Malaysia, and has become a popular way to stay in touch with family and friends,” said Grant Watts, Microsoft South-East Asia general manager for online services group.
The survey found that 56% of Malaysians blogged to express passionately held views, while 49% blogged to keep friends and family updated.
Some 34% just like having a little corner of cyberspace to call their own.
Only a small number, about 3%, said they were practising “citizen journalism.”
As for blog-reading habits, 63% of respondents said they read blogs for entertainment, while technology, travel and music were the three most widely read blog topics across Asia and in Malaysia.
The majority of blog readers, 81%, are most interested in blogs written by friends or family.
Far behind in popularity are blogs by celebrities, pop stars and workmates.
Blogs by business leaders and politicians garner the least interest.
Blog readers said they looked for good writing and plenty of pictures
I do agree that i blog to entertain but i do not agree that 81% of my blog's readers are my family and friends. 99% of Rojaks Daily readers are phantoms lol ... they are there but you dont see them! They exist but you dunno who they are! spooky isnt it?
So ... now that I m not a blogger anymore, what would I be? What about a crap writer?! Yea that sound COOL!!!
Now for my next national level survey! How many time do a Malaysia blogger shit in a day? and what color is your shit? and the texture?
sometime u wonders why ppl spend lotsa money and do stupid survey huh? Beats me!
