Please note that that figure includes all created blogs (including splogs and “I’ll try anything once” -blogs); not actively updated blogs. The estimate on real existing blogs is around 20,000.
I disagree with Janne Jalkanen. True, the figure 170 000 includes all created blogs. But based on pew internet studies and Live Journal stats, the estimate on real existing blogs is around 50 000 – 60 000. 17 000 blogs are very active updated at least weekly.
