I just got done interviewing one of the world's most famous bloggers, and I came away from it pretty stoked. First, this blogger's success story is an inspiring one that you'll want to hear about, and second, the story got me excited about Technorati's 2009 State of the Blogosphere.
The work on our annual State of the Blogosphere is well under way, and will be ready for release at this year's Blog World Expo. From what I've seen so far, this year's update is even more comprehensive than the 2008 report, which was at the time by far our most extensive report ever.
The 2008 data and blogger survey really highlighted the rising professional class of bloggers, and that blogging had grown from a niche social activity into a serious media channel reaching mainstream status in terms of audience and influence. The 2009 edition will follow up these subjects by taking an even more in-depth look. The series of reports will include not just blog activity data from technorati.com and our second annual blogger survey, but we'll also be profiling a small group of professional bloggers that represent bloggers at all levels of the business of blogging spectrum.
Stay tuned...it's coming soon!
