He writes/blog posts thus:

It’s no surprise, then, that the vast majority of blogs have been abandoned. Technorati has identified 133 million blogs since it started indexing them in 2002. But at least 94 percent of them have gone dormant, the company reports in its most recent “state of the blogosphere” study. Only 7.4 million blogs had any postings in the last 120 days, and only 1.5 million had any postings in the last seven days.

For me, my blog is an lifo (last in, first out) diary of thoughts and images I find on the Web and in the blogosphere with my own thoughts appended to introduce and comment on those thoughts and images. It’s a collection of thoughts and images published on web sites and in blogs across the Internet’s cyberspace. Since I post about what I find stimulating and fun, my itty bitty part of the 1.5 million blogs that are active won’t die right away.
