Hoi! Get back to work

In 2005, Employees Will Waste 551,000 Years Reading Them

LOS ANGELES (AdAge.com) — Blog this: U.S. workers in 2005 will waste the equivalent of 551,000 years reading blogs.
About 35 million workers — one in four people in the labor force — visit blogs and on average spend 3.5 hours, or 9%, of the work week engaged with them, according to Advertising Age’s analysis. Time spent in the office on non-work blogs this year will take up the equivalent of 2.3 million jobs. Forget lunch breaks — blog readers essentially take a daily 40-minute blog break.

Uh, I don’t know about you, but 40 minutes seems like a low estimate to me.
Very low.

    Hey, what if it’s my job to read blogs!! And I work 60 hour weeks…what would that do to the average 3.5 hours a week?
    And what’s with the usage of the phrase “…waste the equivalent of 551,000 years…” Waste?!
    Cooltrends may be dead or dying, but blogs are heart and soul of “trends” in the world. Where else would you get your real news?
