I'm (Way) Below Average

Until today, that is.

According to Technorati, which now tracks over 35.3 Million blogs, 19.4 million bloggers (55%) are still posting 3 months after their blogs are created.

So now that I'm back in the game, I guess I can go back to being part of the majority. Though I don't know the stats on blog resurrection, I do have to believe that I'm part of a smaller group of "fighters" who believe it's better late than never. Kind of like the Dwayne Wade commercial for Converse, except that I've only fallen once and it took about 2 months to get up rather than 2 seconds. (In my defense, the lapse period included St. Patty's Day and a sprained ankle... unrelated incidents.) Anyway, I'm back (I think) and reporting live on - wait, what was my original vision/dream for this site... something about my life in Minneapolis. I've gotta change the heading, 'cause these next facts have nothing to do with the Salvador slogan.

Other interesting facts about blogs:

  • The blogosphere is doubling in size every 6 months
  • It is now over 60 times bigger than it was 3 years ago
  • On average, a new weblog is created every second of every day
  • Technorati tracks about 1.2 Million new blog posts each day, about 50,000 per hour
Weather in Minneapolis: Clear skies, 65 and sunny.
