Every year, Technorati, the authority blog database and search engine releases a “State of the Blogosphere” where they document the progression of blogs as a medium and their influence in our culture.
I touched on a few of these statistics already in my post from Sunday on the digital divide. However, now that more detailed information has been released, I thought I’d put some of it here to spread the good news of the blogosphere’s growth with all of you.
Some snapshots from the State of the Blogosphere 2008:
“The word blog is irrelevant, what’s important is that it is now common, and will soon be expected, that every intelligent person (and quite a few unintelligent ones) will have a media platform where they share what they care about with the world.”
