More indications blogging is getting mainstream

Today’s hint that blogging is gradually getting mainstream comes from an article in this month’s Realtor Magazine titled, “Blogging for profit“. It was pointed out to me here at work (since I work for a builder, with real estate agents coming and going). There’s nothing new here, it’s just another introductory article, though there’s an interesting statistic in the print version of the article that doesn’t show up online: only 26% of Americans are familiar with blogs. Which means that 74% of Americans haven’t heard of blogs (or are unfamiliar with them; I guess this depends on what your definition of “familiar” is). I’d guess that sounds about right.
