Blogs mean business

The Jabberwock's big blog story in Business Standard is out. Nice stuff. Patrix, Uma, Amit, Samit and this blog make an appearance.

Here's some stats from the piece
# As of October 2005, Technorati is tracking 19.6 million weblogs internationally
# The total number of weblogs tracked doubles every five months or so, and the blogosphere is now over 30 times as big as it was three years ago
# About 70,000 new weblogs are created every day — that’s about one every second
# Between 700,000 and 1.3 million posts are made each day — or 9.2 posts per second

Blogs will always be a niche. Which doesn't mean won't be viable. The casualness of a blog gives one the impression of 'mass' but the ease and casualness of having a blog will also make it, always, a niche. I may be wrong but I don't think so. We'll see. Btw Amit of India Uncut is right. For bloggers to make money, people have to be ready to part with it, more trustingly. A blog, though, is a great place to showcase the writing you'd like to do on a daily basis for a living but cannot because what you'd like to do is rarely what you're paid to do, often. Thank you.
