Reading Blogs on the Job

By Exclusive Concepts Blog Team

US workers will spend the equivalent of 551,000 years reading blogs in 2005 according to an analysis by Advertising Angels.

That’s 35 million workers, spending 3.5 hours a week or the equivalent of 2.3 million jobs.

Only about 25% is related to work according to a scoring system Ad Age developed. All business blogs are work, 50% of tech and media blogs relate to work, and 25% of political/news blogs are work-related.

Well, you can’t pretend that reading a newspaper is work, but if you’re on the computer reading blogs it very well could be.
