Dave Sifry has posted his latest "State of the Blogosphere," in which he reveals the amazing stats about blog-growth he's derived from Technorati's relentless and exhaustive indexing of every blog on the net.

In addition, services outside the United States have been taking off, including a number of media sites promoting blogging, such as Le Monde in France.
There is a dark underbelly to these numbers, however: Part of the growth of new weblogs created each day is due to an increase in spam blogs - fake blogs that are created by robots in order to foster link farms, attempted search engine optimization, or drive traffic through to advertising or affiliate sites.
