One blog created 'every second'

CNN: In its latest State of the Blogosphere report, it said the number of blogs it was tracking now stood at more than 14.2m blogs, up from 7.8m in March.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/4737671.stm

Randy: Maybe we should buy CNN a calculator and a research assistant.

5 months * 30 days * 24 hours * 60 minutes * 60 seconds / (14.2m - 7.8m) = 1 new blog every two seconds

I assume they forgot the -7.8m :-) If you consider that Technorati is tracking only 20% of the blogosphere, then truly we are growing at 2.5 blogs per second.
