90% of Statistics are Wrong

Here’s some statistics on blogging, blogs and Lincoln Logs anyway…

Several studies indicate that most blogs are abandoned soon after creation (with 60% to 80% abandoned within one month, depending on whose figures you choose to believe) and that few are regularly updated.

Perseus claimed that the average duration of the remaining 1.63 million abandoned blogs was 126 days, with some 132,000 blogs being abandoned after a year or more. The oldest abandoned blog surveyed had been maintained for 923 days.


It has been the Lincoln Logs LTD’s experience, over the past four years for which such statistics have been kept, that the products for an average of approximately 43% of the undelivered contracts in the backlog at the end of the fiscal year are shipped in the subsequent fiscal year.


The more you know, the more you grow.  If your memory isn’t photographic, you may want to make note of this information so as to amaze your friends and family at cocktail parties and the like.
