Phew! Blogs’ meteoric growth rate finally slowing

No wonder productivity is tapering off — people are spending all their time trying to keep up with blogs.

Blogs are continuing to grow exponentially, but at a slower rate, according to a report that blog ranking and search service Technorati will release tomorrow. They offered one intriguing nugget in a news release today:

From Q2 2004 through Q2 2006 the Blogosphere (total Blogs tracked) doubled every 5-7 months (150-220 days). While the growth rate of the Blogosphere remains strong, the overall doubling rate has now extended to over 320 days by March 2007.

What I want to know is how long the doubling will continue. It can’t go on forever, unless we start calling everything a blog.
