Austin the Top Blogging City!

Nielsen Media Research issued their Top Ten Lists for 2007. Within it, they cited a study of the number of adults who read or contributed to a blog in a 30-day period of time. The top cities were:

  1. Austin, TX: 15%
  2. Portland, OR: 14%
  3. San Francisco Bay area, CA: 13%
  4. Seattle, WA: 13%
  5. Honolulu, HI: 12%
  6. San Diego, CA: 12%
  7. Dallas/Fort Worth, TX: 11%
  8. Columbus, OH: 11%
  9. Nashville, TN: 11%
  10. Colorado Springs/Pueblo, CO: 11%

In the same report, they also cited the top cities for adults that had downloaded music or listened to audio clips online. Austin heads the list again:

  1. Austin, TX: 23%
  2. Salt Lake City, UT: 21%
  3. San Diego, CA: 21%
  4. San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose, CA: 20%
  5. New York, NY: 18%
  6. Atlanta, GA: 18%
  7. Chicago, IL: 18%
  8. Houston, TX: 18%
  9. Washington, DC: 17%
  10. Los Angeles, CA: 17%

But Houston and Washington DC both tied Austin in the list of top cities for adults who use text messaging on their cell phones:

  1. Houston, TX: 38%
  2. Austin, TX: 38%
  3. Washington, DC: 38%
  4. Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, FL: 37%
  5. Atlanta, GA: 37%
  6. Salt Lake City, UT: 36%
  7. Seattle/Tacoma, WA: 36%
  8. San Diego, CA: 36%
  9. El Paso, TX: 36%
  10. New York, NY: 35%
