Blog power 2: blogs a Japanese consumer favourite

I couldn't let this article slip by unnoticed. A Dentsu (Japan's largest ad agency) survey shows that blogs were the most popular consumer item selected in the first half of 2005.

More popular than Star Wars 6 (or is it 3?)
More popular than flat-screen TVs
More popular than electronically-automated houses

Hmmm...maybe this is not such big news after all. A few weeks ago, I read that the number of blogs globally had doubled in the last six months, although the number of consistently-updated blogs had not changed very much.

So, a lot of people sign up with good intentions and than let it go after awhile. That makes blogs sound like dieting or quitting smoking. Considering I should lose a few pounds and/or cut out the cigarettes, it makes me wonder how I have been able to keep this up.
