Blogs and their genres: statistical evaluation of 50 blogs in Portuguese

Alex Primo


Given the increasing variety of blogs and the demand for a method that may typify them, respecting their differences, this paper proposes a matrix of 16 blogs genres. Based on this proposal, a statistical evaluation of 5.233 posts, from the 50 most popular Brazilian blogs, is conducted. According to the sample analyzed, it was observed that the organizational and professional blogs are the ones that attract the greatest number of commentaries.
