did you just blink?

Well, in that single second, one new blog launched. Or so writes David Sifry, founder of blog search engine Technorati. That’s more than 80,000 new blogs a day. No wonder it’s so hard to keep up.

Some doubt Technorati’s claims that these numbers exclude spam blogs, but few question the fact that the overall number of blogs is doubling every five or six months. If the trend holds steady, that would mean 20 million blogs by the end of the year.

    Great post!

    Actually, if the trend holds steady, it would mean that there will be about 20 million blogs by the end of the year.
