I have noticed a drop off over the last few months of some VCs keeping up their blog. You may notice that my list on the left hand side shrunk this week as I removed some of them that haven't been updated since last year. There are still some others that haven't been updated since January, but I have faith they will be updated soon and the content is good so I'll keep them up. :)
But it raises an interesting point - has anyone seen a recent stat out there which points to number of blogs vs. number of active users?
I looked at Blogcount.com, but even that is outdated! I read an old stat that said that the number of active blogs is around 55%, but I am not sure how "active" was defined. Looking at LiveJournal's stats, 13% of users are considered active within the last 30 days.
I wonder if the gap is widening? My guess is yes.
