Gartner is predicting that blogging will peak; that there will be a leveling off of the rapid growth in the number of blogs in the first half of 2007.
Reporters have been calling me about this (as if I should know). I agree that the growth rate will slow. Just makes sense. But the corporate blogosphere – if you think of it as one section of the blogosphere – hasn’t finished expanding, IMHO.
Heck, most companies are just getting the hang of it.
