Blogging to peak next year

Analysts Gartner reckons blogging is set to peak next year. Apparently the number of blogs is set level out at 100 million (that would make your blog roll fun wouldn't it ;) ).

Gartner analyst Daryl Plummer said the reason for the levelling off in blogging was due to the fact that most people who would ever start a web blog had already done so.

He said those who loved blogging were committed to keeping it up, while others had become bored and moved on.

"A lot of people have been in and out of this thing," Mr Plummer said.

"Everyone thinks they have something to say, until they're put on stage and asked to say it."

According to technorati (all hail) there are 100,00 new blogs created every day and 1.3 year million posts.

Technorati is tracking more than 57 million blogs and it believes around 55% are active (updated every three months).
