Recent reports about the blogosphere doubling in size every six months (this again) receive some counterpoint here. Using bloglines data, the author shows how the number of blog readers has doubled in the past twelve months (not six). The conclusion drawn from this? Because the quantity of blogs is growing twice as fast as the number of readers, most new blogs don’t matter.
It also appears that the normal blog visitor (by this I mean bell curve normal) monitors between 30 and 100 feeds.
Well, I’m going to the beach. It’s sunny.
