About the State of the Blogosphere

Since 2004, Technorati’s annual State of the Blogosphere report has followed growth and trends in the blogosphere. For the second time, bloggers, generous with their thoughts and insights, were surveyed directly to provide the data for the report.

The 2009 State of the Blogosphere survey demonstrates that the growth of the blogosphere’s influence on subjects ranging from business to politics to the way information travels through communities continues to flourish. In a year when revolutions and elections were organized by blogs, bloggers are blogging more than ever, and the State of the Blogosphere is strong. Technorati is releasing the report in five consecutive daily segments, four of which are already online. If you want the most up-to-date picture of what’s going on in the blogosphere, check it out.
