The Godfather and the Blogosphere…

October 22, 2005 — 1 Comment

It is 10:00 p.m. Pacific time. I am watching The Godfather on Bravo (for the 100th time). This movie is a classic… I never get tired of it (“I never knew until this day that it was Barsini all along.”).

I just finished reading Technorati’s State of the Blogosphere, Part 1. Since my 100th post, over 200,000 new blogs have been created. Check out these staggering statistics:

  • As of October 2005, Technorati is now tracking 19.6 million weblogs.
  • The total number of weblogs tracked continues to double about every 5 months.
  • The blogosphere is now over 30 times as big as it was 3 years ago, with no signs of let-up in growth.
  • About 70,000 new weblogs are created every day.
  • About a new weblog is created each second.
  • 2% – 8% of new weblogs per day are fake or spam weblogs.
  • Between 700,000 and 1.3 million posts are made each day.
  • About 33,000 posts are created per hour, or 9.2 posts per second.
  • An additional 5.8% of posts (or about 50,000 posts/day) seen each day are from spam or fake blogs, on average.

FYI – Bravo just reported the body count in The Godfather was 17 (18, if you count the horse).

I'm a picker. I'm a grinner. I'm a lover. And I'm a sinner. I make my music in the sun.

One response to The Godfather and the Blogosphere…

  1. I love the Godfather saga. Great characters. We recently rented the series. I have tried to start a blog as well. I felt that bringing my passion to my writing was a favorable move. That is, until I realized I could START the blogging, but I can't POST anything now. This is not favorable!!! Being post-challenged is frustrating. If anyone has a suggestion, let me know. I even added blogger to Office Word and still can't post.
