State of the Blogosphere

Why blog?

There are many reasons people and organizations blog, such as:

  • personal enjoyment,
  • sharing,
  • announcements or PR,
  • documentation,
  • collaboration,
  • training,
  • research,
  • and many more.
If you are considering creating a blog or what to understand more about the blogging process, read Technorati's State of the Blogosphere annual reports from October 2004 to today. The reports document how people blog, why people blog, and the results of blogging through statistical data and interviews.

Technorati is a blog search engine that will be covered in more detail in a later blog post.
