Voice in the Crowd

Statistic time: there's a blog born every minute. The blogsphere has almost doubled in five months. It is set to double again in the next five. The info comes from Technorati, a blog search engine that tracks the tags that people put on posts in their blogs. Thirteeen percent of blogs they track update at least once a week, and 55% of new bloggers are updating three months after they began, which is higher than I thought it would be. That's a heck of a lot of voices, all hoping to be heard, from people sounding off about their day, their football team, or the their ex's, to campaining blogs, political blogs and just downright wierd blogs. Some will be heard by many people, some will fall on deaf ears. Using the next blog link in header bar is a good way of dipping into the diversity of blogs out there. But if you do, just remember to come back, eh.....
