Yes, I know that that is way overstated, but blogging continues to increase rapidly.
My Microsoft Momentum: Knowledge Management newsletter (this link requires a Microsoft .NET passport) arrived this week with some recent statistics on blogging. For instance, Technorati is tracking approximately 900,000 blog posts per day and will likely exceed 1,000,000 posts per day by early 2006.
The newsletter brief, actually a Technorati article called, State of the Blogosphere, August 2005, Part 2: Posting Volume, included facts such as 55% of all blogs are still active, and at least 13% of bloggers post at least once weekly. More stats and interesting facts are included in the article.
On the downside, fake blogs and scams are also on the rise.
I also responded to a recent Typepad survey asking me about my blogging habits. That was an interesting exercise. Made me think about why I blog...which I must say, I feel blogging is still a great Personal Knowledge Management tool. This journal, which occassionally gets comments, has already served as a resource that I have gone back to in order to review thoughts and find important links. The comments have helped me review what I've said and my thought processes, and - of course - whether or not the blog communicates or is useful.
I guess I'll remain a part of the 55% and the 13%.
