A New Blog Pops Into Existance Every Half-Second!
Wow! That’s a lot of bloggers! Are there that many readers? Hummmmm….
“According to recent statistics from blog-tracking site Technorati, the blogosphere has doubled every six months for the last three years. That’s 175,000 new blogs per day worldwide. Technorati added its 50 millionth blog on July 31, 2006. The site’s State of the Blogosphere report is released every three months by Technorati CEO Dave Sifry. Sifry has been tracking the blogosphere since 2002, and even he’s surprised at the tremendous rate of growth for this quarter. ‘It is over 100 times bigger than it was just 3 years ago,’ Sifry said on his own blog. ‘Whenever I write about these statistics, I’m always asked by people, ‘Can it continue to grow this quickly?’ Frankly, I can’t possibly imagine it continuing to grow at this pace–after all, there are only so many human beings in the world! It has to slow down.'”
