Some Blog Facts

A new blog is created every second and the phenomenon has grown 60 times larger than it was three years ago, according to Technorati. Currently, 27.2 million blogs and 75,000 new ones created each day. At that rate, the blogosphere doubles about every 5.5 months.

There are about 1.2 million new posts daily, or 50,000 an hour.

The number of Chinese bloggers more than doubled during the first nine months of the year, driven primarily through aggressive marketing and product development by service providers, a research firm reported. As of the end of the third quarter, there were 33.4 million registered bloggers in China, compared with 14.75 million at the end of last year, Analysys International, a private Chinese market researcher said.

Although Dave's analysis reflects the growing importance of international blogging, it still underestimates the importance of blogging in some countries such as Korea and France. I wrote a follow up post to try to outline key trends in those countries
