LinkedIn Counts Nearly 336,000 Bloggers

By Jason Boog Comment

There are 335,924 people on LinkedIn who list “blogging” as one of their skills. That figure rose 27 percent over the last year.

At the same time 1.5 million users listed “writing” as a skill while 824,000 added “editing” and 408,000 included “publishing.” What do you think about these new figures?

LinkedIn emailed users this morning, encouraging them to add skills to their profile on the work-related social network–giving a picture of the sheer number of writers on the network. If you want to meet some of those writers, check out our LinkedIn Groups for Publishing Professionals.
