Technorati's Dave Sifry (who has left comments on this blog regarding Technnorati Tags) has written an interesting post on rapid growth of blogs as counted by Technorati. There are apparently 30-40 thousand blogs created every day. If you discount Bungers' spoof blogs that's still at least 25K per day!
The number of blogs in the world is doubling every five months which you would think means New Links will have even more competition for readers but I saw another study a while back that reckoned the number of blog readers is growing at an even faster pace than the number of bloggers so there should be plenty of new readers for everyone. Yay!
Part two of the article will be about frequency of posting which should give a good measure of how many of those new blogs actually ever get updated. There are so many dead blogs out there that have only one or two posts. We are just over a year old yet hit over 3000 posts ages ago so there's no fear of that here. I would tell you how many posts we have done to date but the post stats are like pretty much everything else on Blogger these days - broken. Come on Google spend some money - we want to see how much crap we've written!
