Abstract: We observe the statistical properties of blogs that are expected to reflectsocial human interaction. Firstly, we introduce a basic normalizationpreprocess that enables us to evaluate the genuine word frequency in blogs thatare independent of external factors such as spam blogs, server-breakdowns,increase in the population of bloggers, and periodic weekly behaviors. Afterthis process, we can confirm that small frequency words clearly follow anindependent Poisson process as theoretically expected. Secondly, we focus oneach blogger-s basic behaviors. It is found that there are two kinds ofbehaviors of bloggers. Further, Zipf-s law on word frequency is confirmed to beuniversally independent of individual activity types.
