Blogging is becoming all the rage

For something considered “so 2004” not long ago, the internet is exploding with web logs.  They really have developed away from angst writing by geeks and toward niche-specific communities.  Technorati is the authoritative source on blogs and blog links.  They have been tracking sites since March of 2003 which just happens to be when i started using blogging software to update my site.  At that time there were 250,000 blogs that they tracked.  Here’s a little graph with a few points that i added for relevance.

Technorati blogs

Cena, Karna, and i were blogging before Technorati had tracked 10 million blogs.  There are other web logs that i read that would fit on here but the three of us are the oldest that i follow that have not lost archives. Hooray for early adopters!
