Sifry’s State of the Blogosphere

It’s time again for Technorati’s quarterly summary of the what they’re seeing and the numbers just underscore the fact that blogs are here to stay. Some highlights:

  • The number of blogs continues to double every 5.5 months
  • Technorati now tracks over 14.4 million blogs and 1.3 billion links
  • That’s a new blog every second or 80,000 blogs/day
  • The number of posts/day has increased to 900,000/day
  • That’s 10.4 posts/second
  • About a third of all posts are self-tagged or categorized
  • 12,000 new tags or categories are discovered each day

Facinating stuff from the folks that have their finger on the pulse.
