Have been tracking the size of the blogosphere for quite some time. It is always one of the first questions that I get asked when speaking on blogs. I use BlogPulse to keep my eye on the growing number of blogs. The new count is in an the blogosphere has grown to 12-million blogs, up from 10 million just 6 weeks earlier -- now that kind of growth plotted carefully may actually look like a hockey stick.
Now, not all of the 12 million blogs are active. Blogpulse reports between 3.8-3.9 million are considered "active" (meaning new information has been posted) in the last 30 days, 5.2 million are considered active in the last 60 days and slightly more than half have been active in the last 90 days.
I can hardly wait to see when the next million blogs will tick by. I'm doing my best to add to them.
