Jews In the Blogosphere

I have been mulling over a question and haven't come up with a good answer. How many Jews participate in the blogosphere. That is, how many of us are blogging and or reading/commenting on blogs.

Just what kind of reach is there?

Any thoughts?

Isn't the blogosphere part of the Jew-owned media?

We're everywhere!

My guess is we're over-represented.

I agree psychotoddler.

I would say maybe 15 percent of bloggers are Jewish.. If we knew how many blogs I think we could back out of that stat to get a good idea of how many.

I wonder is there a place to have them all listed?

Some like mine, are not all Jewish issues, I have some variety but a Jewish theme is there.

There are a whole ton of hard core anti Israel blogs as well.

Tons. There may be as many Jew Hater blogs as there are Jewish ones.

Overepresented is probably not too far off of the mark.

Wouldn't Jewish Blogging or JRants be a good source for the number of Jewish blogs?

Overrepresented, probably. 15%, doubtful. I'm new at blogging, but it seems like I've already come across so many Jewish blogs (mostly because many link to each other), though many are not listed on JRants or Jewish Blogging. Not a bad start, though... Anyone want to proactively compile a list? (Sorry, not a task I would take on...)

That could be interesting, but a beast of a task.
