Rather than just a chart that shows the tremendous growth of blogging over the past 5 years, Technorati conducted a survey of a random sample from the over 1 million bloggers who have registered with Technorati.
They've done a nice job of reporting their data with lots of tables and graphs like these pie charts.
Among the many quotes, these 2 jumped out at me:
“The word blog is irrelevant, what's important is that it is now common, and will soon be expected, that every intelligent person (and quite a few unintelligent ones) will have a media platform where they share what they care about with the world.”
“The future of blogs will have arrived when you check your favorite blog for sports news in the morning, instead of your local paper.”
