The web’s love affair with blogging shows no signs of abating according to the latest report from blog tracking firm Technorati. Every day 100,000 new blogs are created and 1.3 million posts are made, it found during its quarterly survey.
Postings intensify around significant events such as the conflict between Israel and Hezbollah in the summer.

There has also been an increase in the number of blogs being written in the Farsi language. Farsi – a Persian language spoken in Iran and Afghanistan – has moved into the top ten languages of the blogosphere for the first time. The impact of these bloggers on our cultures and democracies is increasingly dramatic

“It indicates that blogging continues to play a critical role in debates about the important issues of our time” said David Sifry, the founder of Technorati.

Technorati is now tracking more than 57 million blogs, of which it believes around 55% are ‘active’ – updated at least every three months.”
