    We know how much time we spend reading blogs at work–and we’d probably spend even more if our firewall didn’t block half of them. According to a recent study by Ad Age, we aren’t alone:

    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.
