Acquisition Creates Blogging Powerhouse

Six Apart which produces the Moveable Type publishing system and TypePad blogging service raised $10 million in venture funds in October. Today it announced the purchase of LiveJournal, a blogging service built on open source that claims 2.5 million users. Together they have 6.5 million blogs, according to TechNewsWorld.com. That seems way high, considering that Pew Research says about 8 million U.S. adults have a blog. (The vast majority of them only post once, however.)

  1. I’ve read studies saying that new blogs are being created at a record pace, so even though the majority of them are abandonded after a single post, perhaps they’re counting all of them.

    I’d like to find out how many active blogs there are after a year of their inception.
