There's no question that the blogosphere is on fire. As the flames spread faster than anyone could have imagined, a virtual state of pandemonium has resulted.
Many businesses and individuals have leaped blindly into the blog pool. Countless bloggers have found the water a bit too chilly and have abandoned blogging altogether. Still others are barely keeping their heads above water as they grapple with the challenges of blogging.
Perhaps you are contemplating blogging? Maybe you are a blogger thinking of calling it quits? Leading bloggers have some important warnings for you.
But first, how many bloggers are there?
How Big Is the Blogosphere?
Just this very moment, dozens of new blogs just went online. Here are the startling facts: In April 2007, 1.4 million blog posts were written every day, according to David Sifry, founder and CEO of blog tracking site Technorati. That's more than 1,000 new entries every minute.
Enormous numbers of people are jumping into blogging. In Sifry's The State of the Live Web report, he revealed that 120,000 new blogs are coming online daily.
With the mass adoption of blogging come some warnings that might surprise you.
