The Big Blog Effort

The results of Blog Action Day are in:


Blog Posts, Audience Numbers, Facts

Measuring an initiative like Blog Action Day is difficult. In 2007 we asked bloggers to register their blogs and a rough count of RSS subscribers. It is worth remembering that RSS subscriber numbers are only one half of the readership of a blog. Many and in some cases all of a blog's readership will simply be visitors to the site. The real reach of Blog Action Day is far greater than the number below.

20,603 Blog Participated
23,327 Blog Posts (Google Blog Search)
