This from the blog mill (http://www.theblogmill.com/) quoting someone else:
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
19.4 million bloggers (55%) are still posting 3 months after their blogs are created
Technorati tracks about 1.2 Million new blog posts each day, about 50,000 per hour
34% of large corporations currently have a blog solution, 70% plan one by the end of the year
It's a complicated way to get to know each other.
