Who blogs more often? Men or Women?

According to my research, there are more female bloggers than male bloggers. The difference between genders in the blogosphere is balanced with women making up 50.9% and males 49.1% of bloggers. 

“Women who blog…were more likely than other groups to say that they blogged mainly about personal experiences.” Majority of women described their blogs as a mix of personal reflection and academic analysis, while male bloggers described their blogs as “very academic.” When asked about the tone that a blog author strives for, male bloggers emphasized the absence of personal experiences: “Personal in tone, but not in content,” and “I didn’t think most people would really care that much about my personal life.” On the other hand, many female bloggers stressed that the opportunity to discuss their personal experiences as an aspect of blogging that contributed most to their continued engagement online: “Media studies blogs…didn’t seem to have much of a personal element and I really enjoyed that in the blogs of women academics that I was reading. So I thought ‘I kind of want to have some of that in my blog’.”
