Only 3% of blogs active?

I read in PC mag. that only 3% of blogs started are actively updated! Wow, I guess the garden bloggers have more to write about or are more tenacious like the plants they grow. Looked up this claim and here's the article from eWeek.com.

I think 3% is a lot actually. I have about 8 blogs but I have only updated my Gardening blog regularly.

And even on my most active blog, I just went through a stretch of 2 months or so without a post. Just started a new job and didn't have any time.

When you take into account all the people who start a blog and then stop after a post or two, I think 3% is a pretty high.

By the way, I just found your blog on GardenVoices and have been enjoying it.

Hi Anthony, thanks for the compliment and your comments. You're probably right in your assessment that 3% is a lot. It's pretty difficult to even maintain a single blog let alone several. I'm sure it's pretty discouraging too when you (not you in particular) see (if you have a counter) that no one has visited your blog. It was lean pickings when I first started and thought why am I doing this? Still lean but I just soldier on, oblivious of whether people are reading it. ;0

GardenVoices is a great resource. I've thanked Old Roses for providing such a great service. Must be time consuming to aggregate and display all those blogs everyday.
