14 million blogs
new report from Technorati's David Sifri on the growth of the blogosphere:
As of the end of July 2005, Technorati was tracking over 14.2 Million weblogs, and over 1.3 billion links. Interestingly, this is just about double the number of blogs that we were tracking 5 months ago. In March 2005 we were tracking 7.8 million blogs, which means the blogosphere has just about doubled again in the past 5 months, and that the blogosphere continues to double about every 5.5 months.This updates the 5 million blogs figure I gave in an article I wrote about RSS services back in January.
