Do you still think blogging is a fad?

I see Dave Sifry (who I interviewed on PodLeaders.com a couple of weeks ago) has published a new quarterly State of the Blogosphere.

Dave’s main findings are that the blogosphere is still doubling in size every 6 months – so it is maintaining its rate of virtually exponential growth. The blogosphere is over 60 times bigger than it was only 3 years ago.

The main points to note are:

  • Technorati now tracks over 35.3 Million blogs
  • On average, a new weblog is created every second of every day
  • Technorati tracks about 1.2 Million new blog posts each day, about 50,000 per hour and, most interesetingly,
  • 19.4 million bloggers (55%) are still posting 3 months after their blogs are created
