Did you know that there are over 112 million weblogs (blogs), not including the 72.82 million Chinese blogs tracked by Technorati as of 2007. Chinese media Xinhua reported that its blog received more than 50 million page views, claiming it to be the most popular blog in the world.

The book based on Julie Powell's blog 'The Julie/Julia Project' was made into the film 'Julie & Julia'.

Politically Speaking

TRUE - Last month, Sept, 2009, Obama said, "I am concerned that if the direction of the news is all blogosphere, all opinions, with no serious fact-checking, no serious attempts to put stories in context, that what you will end up getting is people shouting at each other across the void, but not a lot of mutual understanding."

He said he would be happy to look a bills that could give newspapers tax-breaks if they were to restructure as 501 (c) (3) corporations (most hospitals are 501 c 3). One of the bills is that of Senator Ben Cardin, who has introduced the 'Newspaper Revitalization Act'.

Yeh, the newspapers put things in context and are not one sided. Right!
