Tom Brokaw told me, as I was reading the airline’s magazine yesterday that “by one count, 100,000 new blogs are born every day.”

I glossed over that. I mean, yeah, I know a lot of people do it. Yeah, I read a whole bunch or ‘em. Yeah, I tell people I know they should start one.

But then I began to think of the trajectory. That’s 3 million new blogs a month. At a flat pace, there will be half a billion blogs by the time Tessa graduates from high school. And we know it won’t be a flat pace.

Three years ago, Blog Herald estimated that there were 70 million blogs. How many do you think there are today? I couldn’t find an educated guess. 300 million? Half a billion? More?

Awwwww, man. I’m NEVER going to know everything there is to know.

I wonder how many of them get started, get one post, and then never return. Though still, that’s a lot of blogs.
