Study shows Americans' blogging behaviour

Dr. Baxter has posted a study to his blog and since it pertains to blogging I thought it would be a good quick read. The statistics are below:

8 out of 10 Americans know what a blog is and almost half have visited blogs.

46% regular blog readers.
54% surf.

1 in 3 people read gossip on blogs.
2% to catch up on news on blogs.
50% find blogs entertaining, and another
26% learn about specific hobbies or other areas they're interested in.
5% of blog readers say they do so for news
15% of those who have never read a blog said that they don't care about the opinions and ideas typically expressed in blogs.

It also gives me the opportunity to bring up the Psychology and Self-Help Forum.

Dr. Baxter is first and foremost just a great person with a big heart. Dr. Baxter has not only endured his own tragic situation but freely gives advice and information to others in need.

In the beginnings of my efforts I could find no other article or information pertaining to just the workplace so spoke to Dr. Baxter and he was graciously wrote a wonderful article for USMWF.

I really feel this is a great asset for anyone needing to get something off their chest of advice and it is free! Please if you feel the need and can't bring yourself to speak to anyone then opt to go to his site. I know there comes a point in ones grieving that you just don't talk to your family any longer simply because you do not want to burden them any longer, you have shameful thoughts, or people are just tired of hearing about it. If you feel you are not getting what you need or you feel we have not been able to connect with one of us visit his site it will be worth your time and effort.
