A new report from the IHT on the state of the Chineses blogosphere suggests that the current number of Chinese blogs is 6 million, up from 5 million as of 3 weeks ago. The report also states that leading Chinese blog provider Bokee, formerly called BlogChina, expects to have 10 million blogs on their service by the end of the year.
Update: As you may notice from the comments, the Reuters article that’s been run widely around the planet is totally wrong. The 14.2 million Chinese blogs referred is the number of all blogs on Technorati, not just Chinese blogs. The original IHT story (in which the Reuters article is based) states there are 6 million Chinese blogs, which I’ve used in this report, and believe to be the accurate figure.
