Does the blogsphere go to sleep over the weekend?

Sitting here, eyes fixed on the computer screen, with an almost disbelief expression on my face. My stats have dropped almost 80% over the weekend. Do blog readers go to sleep over the week end? Is blogging a Monday to Friday job.

Look at the overall stats supplied by Amatomu, we definitely see a significant drop in page views over the weekend. I have to ask myself why? Is this a normal occurrence. Studying my blog stats history, I do see a similar pattern.

This pattern would generally suggest that most people who read blogs do so during the week. From Monday through to Friday. It is obvious that most people work week days, Monday to Friday. Which would seem to indicate that most people,  South Africans at least, browse the internet, read blog, participate on Social Networks during the week. This all being done, seemingly, while they are at work.

Is it because majority do not have internet at home, and therefore use the company internet connection? Is it because people have no need to read the news or read blogs during the weekend and perhaps see that time as family time? Is it just my particular blog niche, that being a technology blog, and that it mainly thrives during the week?

What ever the reason, I think, as a blogger, it would be very interesting to find out. Blogging is all about targeting your readers and audience. Finding out their preferences, their habits, their likes and dislikes, is what makes the difference between the fly-by-night blogger, and the serious, or even professional blogger.

So then, what is your preference? Do you prefer to read blogs and browse the internet while at work? Is blogging only a weekday thing for you? Let us know. It sure would be interesting for me and others to find out.
