My friend Seren (her blog is here) She has 35k readers, She blogs about Second Life. I have a few thousand across all my blogs. She celebrated her three years of blogging and I realised that I had been blogging for four years. There are some 71 million WordPress blogs . You can look at the stats here All my links open a new page. Over 384 million people view more than 13.3 billion pages each month. This is just WordPress. Tumblr have 101 million with 44 billion blog posts. The blogosphere is vast and very healthy. There are 62 million comments made each month on WordPress so this is by no means a passive medium. I am amazed at this. Never in the history of humankind has there been such vociferousness.
People blog about everything and anything. It is an easy communications medium; some specialise and some, like this blog, are general. All my main blogs are self hosted and the most popular set up earlier this year is eCollege.me people want to learn, especially online. The statistics below refer to the USA which only represents a proportion of blogging. Other stats show a much higher proportion of women blogging.
Below is a report on Social Media 2012. Clicking on the link will take you to my scribd site, perhaps my most successful contribution to the vast library that is the Internet with over 80k reads. As you can see the link below is not an embed but just a link. This is a serious drawback of a free site rather than a self hosted WordPress site.
Another site you should be aware of is Hyperconnectivity dot me I love doing research. 🙂 This site has a number of important points and well worth a glance with emphasis on the UK.
The message? You are here reading this blog. If you haven’t got one, get one its free. After you have wet your feet with a free site take the plunge and get a self hosted site it is far more sophisticated while being as easy to use. I will hold your hand if you need it through Personal Domains dot net. You can fill out the form below too.
