Here’s a handy graph of how many Chicago bloggers are using blogspot, livejournal, typepad, xanga, and diaryland.
Almost half of the 2,000+ Chicago blogs registered at chicagobloggers.com use Blogspot. I’m rather shocked that so many people are using that system–over 900 bloggers in Chicago.
One might find it shocking that there are only five myspace users in these stats. But that’s not too suprprising, because I’d imagine most MySpace users aren’t going to the effort of registering their blog on chicagobloggers.com, because MySpace blogs are more of an ancillary feature on the MySpace service.
But a revealing detail is that almost five times the amount of Livejournal users took the effort to register their site versus the Xanga users. And 97 typepad users. Whoa. I don’t know anyone who uses Typepad.
