Technorati publish more blogosphere stats

Dave Sifry published more Technorati stats on the rate of growth of the Blogosphere yesterday.

As well as the numbers posted last week which I wrote about here, Dave also tells us that

  • 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

Dave also points out that the blogosphere is doubling in size about every 5.5 months – see chart below:

This is a phenomenal rate of growth and personally, I can see this rate of growth being maintained if not surpassed in the short to medium term as more people and businesses become aware of blogs.
