The results of my third blog survey suggest that three out of four Swedish bloggers are female (76.2% vs 23.8%). Statistics from .SE (The Internet Infrastructure Foundation) now support the view that women are dominating the Swedish blogosphere. According to a press release, female bloggers registered 18% of all new private domains in Sweden (.se) during 2007 while male bloggers only registered 6%. That is almost exactly the same female/male ratio (75% vs 25%) as in my survey.
Danny Aerts CEO at .SE says that men traditionally have always registered more domains than women and that this is the first time women are in majority.
.SE says that at the beginning of 2007, about 5% of the individuals who registered a domain intended to use it for a blog, and at the end of the year the percentage had doubled.
