The state of the blogosphere

  • Technorati now tracks over 44.7 million blogs
  • The blogosphere is doubling in size every 6 months
  • It is over 60 times bigger than it was in 2003
  • On average, a new weblog is created every second of every day
  • 20 million bloggers are still posting 3 months after their blogs were created
  • Technorati tracks about 1.2 million new blog posts each day, about 50,000 per hour
  • The blogosphere is multilingual, and deeply international
  • English, while being the language of the majority of early bloggers, has fallen to less than a third of all blog posts in April 2006.
  • Japanese, Chinese, English, Spanish, Italian, Russian, French, Portuguese, Dutch, and German are the languages with the greatest number of posts tracked by Technorati.
  • Language breakdown does not necessarily imply a particular country or regional breakdown.

Pity most of my favourite blogs have been discontinued in the last few months.
