How many blogs?

Technorati, has posted the latest quarterly series of statistical tracking of blogs, which Dave Sifry calls the "State of the Blogosphere." Technorati indexes all the blogs it can find -- which is most of the public blogs on the Internet -- and organizes, indexes, and republishes them as feeds, watchlists, and trendspotting reports.

Dave Sifry covers off the increased, never-ending growth of the blogosphere -- more blogs, more posts, and lots more spam. Also bloggers type more about new technology products.

* Technorati now tracks over 35.3 Million blogs
* The blogosphere is doubling in size every 6 months
* It is now over 60 times bigger than it was 3 years ago
* On average, a new weblog is created every second of every day
* 19.4 million bloggers (55%) are still posting 3 months after their blogs are created
* Technorati tracks about 1.2 Million new blog posts each day, about 50,000 per hour
