I stumbled across this great post on thefuturebuzz.com written by Adam Singer on December 10,2009; it is a statistical synthesis of Technorati’s 2009 State of the Blogosphere 

Many sneer at the lowly blog.  But as Singer points out, it is worth remembering the fact that a whopping 133,000,000 blogs have been indexed by Technorati since 2002. And according to Universal McCann, 77% of active Internet users read blogs. 

Dead? Dying?  I don’t think so.  The blogosphere keeps chugging along.
