When it comes to blog statistics, Technorati is the authority as it indexes more than 1 million blogs. Since 2004, Technorati has been publishing an annual study of the growth and trends in the blogosphere called the State of the Blogosphere. This year, Technorati took a closer look into the blogosphere, focusing on mobile blogging and female bloggers.
Here’s an introduction from Technorati’s State of the Blogosphere 2010:
Welcome to Technorati’s State of the Blogosphere 2010 report. Since 2004, our annual study has followed growth and trends in the blogosphere.

This year’s topics include: brands embracing social media, traditional media vs. social media, brands working with bloggers, monetization, smartphone and tablet usage, importance of Twitter and Facebook, niche blogging, and changes within the blogosphere over 2010.
The Technorati State of the Blogoshere 2010 is an extensive and very detailed documentation so I’ll only share some of the interesting data that I got from reading the report.
