Blogroll Analysis

Sarah at Validation has been comparing and contrasting the blogrolls of 60 American (I’m one of her “respondents”) and 60 British bloggers and has posting posted some interesting preliminary data here.

Among her early findings:
  • U.S. females are more likely than men to have 10 or fewer blogs in their blogrolls
  • females are more likely to link to female bloggers and males to male bloggers
  • longer blogrolls are often associated with a particular interest or hobby (such as birding)
  • U.S. bloggers seem less willing than U.K. bloggers to link to foreign blogs
  • I wonder how closely bird bloggers track these early trends?
