posts per minute

After publishing one of my blog entries I checked weblogs.com to see my name in lights but it wasn’t there yet. I waited a few minutes and reloaded and was shocked to see how many other people had posted. In only 17 minutes there were 165 new posts. It was only one sample but I don’t believe it was an aberration. Assuming is wasn’t, eight or nine entries are published every minute. In the time it took me to write this post (about 5 minutes) over 40 new entries were published. That’s a whole lotta bloggin’.
