Blogging Continues to Grow

Technorati’s David Sifry updates the latest state of the blogosphere and things look good.

What’s particularly interesting is that the new bloggers are actually sticking with it.

New blog creation continues to grow. We currently track over 75,000 new weblogs created every day, which means that on average, a new weblog is created every second of every day – and 13.7 million bloggers are still posting 3 months after their blogs are created. In other words, even though there’s a reasonable amount of tire-kicking going on, blogging is growing as a habitual activity. In October of 2005, when Technorati was only tracking 19 million blogs, about 10.4 million bloggers were still posting 3 months after the creation of their blogs.

Tagging is becoming more popular with over 81 million posts with tags since January 2005, increasing by 400,000 per day.

I’d love to add tags or categories to MarketingPilgrim, alas it’s the one feature that Blogger seems content to have missing.

    “a new weblog is created every second of every day”

    That statistic is amazing. With a blog created every second it certainly takes word-of-mouth marketing (buzz) to a new level.
