ArminasX Saiman has been a very busy man. Some time ago he decided to have a look how many Secondlife blogs were active. This was done via Technorati rank.
I wondered this some time ago , and the consensus was there would be 500 or so, ArminasX and his mighty crew of helpers found at least 1,202. I guess it was a lot of work.
I'm equal ranked 84th :-) Who would have guessed?
It's more likely that there are a few more that have been missed, and there are those that are abandoned, but one day might be resumed.
Personally I hate it when someone deletes their blog, it's almost like a personal insult.

I think the pleasure of completed work is what makes blogging so popular. You have to believe most bloggers have few if any actual readers. The writers are in it for other reasons.
Blogging is like work, but without coworkers thwarting you at every turn. All you get is the pleasure of a completed task.
