Blogosphere Expanding at Rate of One Blog Per Second

Posted on August 2, 2005

The blogosphere is expanding at the rate of 1 bps or one blog per second. That is 80,000 new blogs per day to add to the 70 million + blogs already in existence. The information comes from the latest State of the Blogosphere report from Technorati CEO David Sifry.

This rapid expansion of the blogosphere is causing it to double every five months. Sifry says services like MSN Spaces, Blogger, LiveJournal and AOL Journals are growing quickly. The BBC has more about the new report.

If you want to see some brand new blogs try a search for "Hello World" one one of the major blog search engines. Not every blog launches with a "Hello World" entry so you won't catch them all this way.
