The Pew Research Center digs into popular attitudes about blogging. Among the findings: blogging is more or less passe among the under-34 crowd, assuming they even know what a blog is.

For all the excitement about blogs and the media coverage of them, blogs have not yet become recognized by a majority of internet users. Only 38% of all internet users know what a blog is. The rest are not sure what the term “blog” means.

Full report is here (pdf).
