The Economics of Blogs

Mark Evans: Om Malik is one of the most popular bloggers but he barely makes enough money from advertisements on his Web site to cover his costs.

Randy: Mark wrote an article on blogs in Canada's Financial Post. The article states "at a time when the number of blogs nears 13 million." The top two blog hosting services have more than 13 million blogs, LiveJournal has 7 million and Blogger has 8 million (7+8=15). If you count all the major services, you realize that we are already well beyond 30 million blogs and possibly 40 million blogs.
