Wasting Time on Blogs

According to an article in AdAge (unfortunately behind a free subscription wall), "U.S. workers in 2005 will waste the equivalent of 551,000 years reading blogs." According to the article, about 35 million workers or a quarter of the labor force go to blogs, spending 3.5 hours, or 9%, of the work week at them.

But why does AdAge say people are wasting time? Because for the moment, blogs appear to be stealing time away from work--not from other Web sites people visit, according to comScore. And according to ComScore’s tally of blog categories, just 25% of blog visits directly connect to the job."

Ok, so as One Angry Customer puts it, who said workers were bonded labor, especially now that people seem to be working so hard these days?
