Sifry’s back with his ‘State of the Blogosphere’ for April 2006:

  • The number of blogs has multiplied by 60 in the past 3 years.
  • 75,000 new weblogs created every day (1 per second)
  • 19.4 million bloggers (55%) still posting 3 months later (was 50%)
  • 3.9 million bloggers update their blogs at least weekly.
  • 1.2 posts added every day, 50,000 posts/hour (after straining out spam)

    Looking at data from bloglines users, we’ve concluded that
    – The feeds that really matter (FTRMs) are a very small fraction of blogosphere
    – FTRMs double each year, not each six months
    – Most users follow a modest number of feeds
