Washington Post on Japanese blogging

The Washington Post has an interesting article on the rise of Japanese blogging. The article reports that more blog entries are written in Japanese than in English, even though there are about 8 times more Anglophones than Japanese speakers. Japanese blog entries are more likely to be based on everyday life than on the opinions or expertise of the writer.

Kana Kanisawa’s blog
, which consists of over 8600 entries which are phonecam pictures with brief captions, exemplifies this characteristic.
