Malaysian bloggers boleh

I looked at some blog directories and compared the number of Malaysian bloggers with that of 5 other neighbouring countries, namely, Brunei, Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand.

The results are quite impressive.

Here are the figures for each directory:

A. RICE BOWL JOURNALS
  1. Brunei - 30
  2. Indonesia - 251
  3. Malaysia - 855
  4. Philippines - 1560
  5. Singapore - 858
  6. Thailand - 53
Malaysia is ranked 3rd here. The number of Filipino bloggers is quite impressive. Probably due to the fact that a lot of them are Americans whose Ethnic origin is the Philippines.

B. DIARIST
  1. Brunei - 0
  2. Indonesia - 11
  3. Malaysia - 109
  4. Philippines - 140
  5. Singapore - 98
  6. Thailand - 27
Malaysia is ranked 2nd here

C. MISOHONI: BEST BLOGS IN ASIA
  1. Brunei - 7
  2. Indonesia - 0
  3. Malaysia - 206
  4. Philippines - 128
  5. Singapore - 248
  6. Thailand - 15
Malaysia is also ranked 2nd here.

4. BLOGFLUX
  1. Brunei - 11
  2. Indonesia - 297
  3. Malaysia - 578
  4. Philippines - 588
  5. Singapore - 319
  6. Thailand - 117
Malaysia is ranked 2nd again here.

5. BLOG EXPLOSION
  1. Brunei - 5
  2. Indonesia - 76
  3. Malaysia - 556
  4. Philippines - 598
  5. Singapore - 370
  6. Thailand - 26
Malaysia is ranked 2nd again here.

That's an overall average ranking of 2.2. The Philippines comes out on top with an average rank of 1.4. Singapore has an overall average ranking of 2.4.

NOTE:
- The number of blogs are correct as of 6th April, 2007.
- This is not a measure of the quality of blogs.

Malaysian Bloggers Boleh.
