State of the Blogosphere

David Sifry (Technorati) has posted the latest numbers on the State of the Blogosphere. Staggering.

About 1.6 Million postings per day, or about 18.6 posts per second … As of July 2006, about 175,000 new weblogs were created each day, which means that on average, there are more than 2 blogs created each second of each day … Today the blogosphere is doubling in size every 200 days, or about once every 6 and a half months.

At what point will it become unusual for someone not to have a blog?

  1. Why should it become unusual?

    Not everybody has the need to share their life and observations with the world, or record them for their own later reading.

  2. Interesting Les. I think they’re feeling the heat of WordPress pretty heavily now – MT marketshare has dipped drastically over the past year+.

  3. Ya know I thought I had a moment of Deja Vu today when I posted that. I went back through their news archives and on July 13 when 3.3 was released they pimped the personal is free factor.

    They must be really feeling the heat if they’ve got to put out a news release to remind us of something they said a month ago. I bet I posted that here in July too. Sorry.
