A new blog every second of every day

(Posted by gabe to: blogging )

I knew it was big, but not this big. I just read Dave Sifry's latest report on the state of the blogoshere over at the Technorati Weblog. And I was truly amazed at the current size of the blogosphere, its rate of growth, and perhaps most important, the near-instantaneous response of blog coverage to world events. Listed below are major takeaways from Sifry's report Go here to read it for yourself.

* Technorati now tracks over 27.2 Million blogs
* The blogosphere is doubling in size every 5 and a half months
* It is now over 60 times bigger than it was 3 years ago
* On average, a new weblog is created every second of every day
* 13.7 million bloggers are still posting 3 months after their blogs are created
* Spings (Spam Pings) can sometimes account for as much as 60% of the total daily pings Technorati receives
* Technorati tracks about 1.2 million new blog posts each day, about 50,000 per hour
* Over 81 million posts with tags since January 2005, increasing by 400,000 per day
