Blogs Around the World

Business Week has a new section of their web site, called Blog Spotting, dedicated to watching blogs. An article there yesterday discussed the explosion of blogs outside of the United States. (full article link) According to the head of blog tracking firm PubSub, there are more bloggers in Korea, China and Japan than there are in the rest of the world combined. Likewise, he identified Brazil, the Philippines and Malaysia as places where blogging is very big.

The article recommended Global Voices and RConversation as good places to get in touch with the global blogosphere. I'd also recommend the very important Committee to Protect Bloggers.

Blogs are catching on around the world because they are a simple, powerful way to quickly communicate information to a lot of people. Almost no matter what your work or interests, a blog might come in very handy for you. They certainly are for people around the world. To check out the articles I've saved in my Furl archive about international application of blogs and other groovy web tools, you can go here.
