Blogging fails to take off ...

Rubel twitters 'bout Guardian's article this morning regarding the state of the blogosphere.

Lots of bloggers - few in the United States compared to the rest of the world.

"According to Technorati, the number of weblogs has risen to 70m compared with 35m some 320 days ago. But interestingly, only a third of these are English-language blogs.

Considering it is 10 years since the first weblog was introduced and nearly eight years since easy-to-use blogs were pioneered by, the number of blogs in operation is not exactly mind-boggling when compared with other phenomena on the web, such as the 65,000-plus videos uploaded to YouTube every day."

What'cha make of these stats, "live web" world?

Guardian asks,

"Is it better to communicate through a peer group in a social networking environment where shared interests will guarantee you an audience, rather than propel your thoughts into the blogosphere where often they will be read by no one unless you have managed to build up a "brand".
