A recent survey of readers of the more than 400 blogs in Lebanon shows that their numbers are close to the online readership of the most well-known Lebanese newspapers: both averaging 14,000 visitors daily. This is a clear indication that blogs have become one of the main media sources for Lebanese youth to access diverse information and various opinions.
You might think he’s exaggerating, but he’s not. This blog had more visitors in August than the websites of Almustaqbal and Al-diyar combined. But that is simply because the bulk of the readership of those newspapers are in the paper versions (and I am still easily trounced by the “well known” Annahar, Al-Akhbar and the Daily Star‘s websites)
