A new blog every second! (the state of the blogospere)


Technorati has done another State of the Blogosphere.

Check it out here: Technorati Weblog: State of the Blogosphere, August 2005



  • Technorati was tracking over 14.2 Million weblogs, and over 1.3 billion links in July 2005
  • The blogosphere continues to double about every 5.5 months
  • A new blog is created about every second, there are over 80,000 created daily
  • About 55% of all blogs are active, and that has remained a consistent statistic for at least a year
  • About 13% of all blogs are updated at least weekly

Wow! This is even ‘worse’ than Moore’s law!
How long will it take before my parents are going to start a weblog?

Follow this trend (using a 6 months periods in stead of 5.5)
2005 July      14.2
2006 Jan       28.4
2006 July      58.8
2007 Jan     113.6
2007 July    227.2
2008 Jan     908.8
2008 July   1817.6
2009 Jan   3635.2
2009 July  7270.4
2010 Jan 14540.8

How long will it take untill this trend is broken?
Or will my dishwasher get a blog?
Will it dish me on the web by telling the world I don’t do the maintenance according to the manual? 🙂

    Well let\’s see;total current world population @ 08/01/05 = 6,457,380,056roughly 80% of these don\’t have acces to a pc (hell 40% have even never made a phonecall in their live or will ever do so) so that leaves : 1.291.476.011a whole lot of people are too old or young to cope with a pc, so let\’s take of another 25% for this group: 968.607.008Maybe 75% will have intrest in creating a blog (a bit much but hey let\’s think positive): 726.455.256 and of that only 55% will be active : 399.550.390So yes the number of blogs will increase but they\’ll never acceed the above mentioned.By the way nice blog will visit more often in the future 😉
