Growing in numbers

According to the egyptian government, Egypt now has more than 160,000 blogs.

report issued by the Information and Decision Making Center at the
cabinet council stated that the number of Egyptian blogs has reached
160,000 by last April, which represents 30.7% of the Arab blogs and
2.0% of the blogs throughout the world. Egyptian bloggers are more than
162,000, mostly 20- 30 years old.

2% of the world's blogs. Not too chabby for starting off with 30 blogs 4 years ago. Not too chabby at all! 🙂

    I expect nothing less from an angry population with a lot of time on its hands. Since the majority don’t drink or get laid writing would have to be the enxt best thing.

    Pretty good, I’d say — presuming we’re only looking at the numbers, not the quality. I’d like to see a breakdown of that stat by frequency of posting and by traffic…
