80,000 Blogs A Day

Technorati’s report on the blogosphere.

Technorati, the site that tracks blogs, released a report entitled State of the Blogosphere, August 2005. The first part deals with the incredible growth of the blogosphere.

By the way, while you were reading that little paragraph, seven or eight new blogs were created.

Technorati is now tracking about 80,000 new weblogs every day, which means a new weblog is created about every second. That’s right, 80,000 new blogs per day. That means the blogosphere doubles in size every 5.5 months. Crazy.

Another ten or twenty blogs were created while you were reading about blogs being created.

55% of blogs are active. 13% are updated at least once per week. I’m proud to be one of the 13%.

There are between 10 and 11 articles posted every second of every day. That’s just about a million articles per day. That has doubled from the number recorded in January of this month.

Suffice it to say that the growth of the blogosphere is crazy and surely unparalleled in human history. It’s hard to believe that there are enough readers to go around. Perhaps Joe Carter is right and sooner or later blogs are going to have to begin consolidating lest the readership be spread too thin.

    Why Didn’t You Tell Me?

    If you have spent any time at all on YouTube, you have probably seen videos of people hearing for the first time or people seeing color for the first time—videos of people who, through the miracles of modern science, have senses restored that had either been missing altogether or that had become dull through illness…

    We All Have To Do With God
