with 24 comments

The first survey on South African bloggers was released this week. An American survey was also released and there are some interesting comparisions.


  • 75 % of American bloggers have a college degree


    • 75 % of South African bloggers have a higher than matric qualification.


      • While more bloggers are male in America, slightly more are female in South Africa.


        • In America more than half the bloggers earn more than $ 75 000 per annum


          • In South Africa 43 % earn more than R 20 000 per month.


            • 59 % of American bloggers have been blogging for more than two years.


              • 40 % of South African bloggers have been blogging for more than two years.


                • 25 % of Americans spend more than 10 hours a week on their blog


                  • 10 % of South Africans spend more than 10 hours a week on their blog.


                      • Over half of the top bloggers according to the

                      Technorati Authority post five or more times a day.


                    • In South Africa just over 20 % of bloggers post six or more times A WEEK.


                      • In America a staggering 50 % of active blogs receive more than a 1000 monthy visitors, while in South Africa, 35 % get less than 100 visitors a month and 25 % get less than 500 visitors a month.


                        • The reasons behind why American bloggers receive more traffic are probably that the South African blogging community is small compared to America and does not receive as much exposure.

                            flowers as a centerpiece of the table. The most desirable tennis racket to try to find,
                            or the “holy grail” so to speak, would be
                            the early fish-tail rackets. They love using such brands made of graphite that offers
                            balance between power and the control.

                          2. Choosing the right grip size for your racket depends mostly on hand size but also on strength, style, and other
                            factors. Here’s how these factors affect overall game performance.
                            One project that you’ll love is to take a tennis racquet and turn it into a nice wall mirror.

                            more than the recommended dosage isn’t allowed as it can lead
                            to a painful gastrointestinal tract.

                            hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing

I should warn, this magic spell might not be appropriate for everyone; when people hire me for spell casting, I often make them get a tarot reading to ensure that the spell they want is really going to tackle the problems they are having.
