Blogging statistics?

Dave Slusher was musing about a peculiar statistic of his audio blogging experiments: all the commentors appear to be male. That set me to wondering what the statistics of your average blogger was. Luckily, Livejournal maintains statistics that I found rather interesting.

Despite Dave's experience, on LiveJournal only one in three bloggers who chose to identify their sex claimed to be males: women outnumber men 2 to 1. 98% of them use free accounts. The age distribution is heavily skewed towards teenagers. Only 1.1% of them are over age 40 (like myself). The most popular age for bloggers is eighteen.

This explains a great deal about the popularity of my blog.
