“Blogosphere” is a term coined to describe the world of blogs, setting them apart as a distinct part of the internet. In its broadest sense, the “blogosphere” includes every single blog regardless of subject matter. It’s hard to say exactly how many blogs there are, but as of April 2006, the popular tracking service Technorati (www.technorati.com) tracked 36.8 million websites and weblogs.
According to its data, 75,000 new blogs are created and 1.2 million new posts written every day. And Technorati’s numbers are only part of the picture: many millions more blogs are written in languages and countries not tracked by Technorati. The blogosphere, like the world, is further divided into smaller communities, also often called blogospheres. The Russian blogosphere consists of blogs in Russian, based in Russia, or about Russia. The Armenian-language blogosphere is populated by blogs in Armenian about many different subjects. One can divide the blogosphere in many different ways and one blog may be part of different blogospheres. But within these smaller divisions, just like
in real neighborhoods and communities, there is a great deal of interaction.
