2006 Wrap-Up :: State of the Blogosphere

As 2006 comes to a close, Technorati tells us that there are 62.5 million blogs out there. Compare this to the beginning of the year, when there were only 27.2 million. That is one whopping big increase in just 12 months. I’m amazed.

Gartner have predicted that blogging will peak in 2007, which may be true. But with such explosive growth over the last 12 months, you’d expect things to slow down a little.

I’d be really interested to know if anyone has information about the size and state of the Australian Blogosphere. Does anyopne have any figures on this?

I’ve been away for a while, but it seems that blogging is nowhere near as prominient here in OZ. I don’t think people here know what a blog is, let alone the benefits to be had from starting a blog. Am I wrong?

Either way, I think 2007 may be a big year for Australian blogging.
