The number of Chinese bloggers is expected to hit 60 million by the end of this year, Xinhua said, quoting a report on China’s media industry by the prestigious Tsinghua University.

    Are you aware of anyone ever having done any sort of statistical breakdown of Chinese blogs? I am not. Someone ought to do a representative sample. I think it would show that many of the blogs are 1) essentially dead, 2) nothing more than personal ramblings, and 3) really nothing more than ad pages. I am curious how many “real” blogs there are and how quickly that number is growing. Does anyone know?
