Blogging and Language

Currently attending AlwaysOn’s OnHollywood conference, where Technorati EVP Peter Hirschberg last night said that English is not blogging’s native tongue.

According to a Technorati study of blog postings by language, 41% of blog posts are in Japanese, 28% are in English, and 14% are in Chinese.

The stat (obviously) grabbed my attention, but now I’m trying to wonder if it surprises me or not. What do you guys think?

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
