Pew Internet and American Life Project on Content Creation

Pew Internet and American Life Project‘s latest survey covers content creation online.

Some interesting findings from a phone survey conducted between March 12 and May 20, 2003.

  • 13% maintain their own Web sites
  • 7% have Web cams running on their computers
  • 2% maintain Weblogs, 11% read weblogs, and about a third of readers have left comments. 10% of bloggers update daily.
  • Power creators, average age of 25, are most likely to be blogging.

It is interesting to note what has happened since May 20, 2003 that has most likely increased those numbers. AOL launched its AOL Journals service. TypePad launched. Blogger Pro became free. Weblogs became a part of political campaigns.
