Got this in the mail today…
Hi, my name is [xxx] and I work for a Hungarian weblog service company [zzz]. We are doing a joint research with [a university] about blogging, and I now search for the number of blogs in Singapore. Could you help me about where can I find some information about this topic? Thanks for your help.
To which I replied…
Hello, that’s quite an interesting question. I can’t give you an accurate number at the moment, unless I do some research in this area as well. However, blogger LancerLord has a blogroll with about 580 Singaporean blogs as of May 5th, 2005. This likely represents a fraction of the entire Singapore blogosphere.
Later today, I made three other counts of Singaporean blogs:
– MrWang recently wrote about Links Links, which shows a bigger blogroll of about 840 Singaporean blogs
– EducateWandie’s SG Bloglocator currently shows 193 blog location entries (as seen on the map)
– Technorati only showed 125 blogs profiles with the tag: Singapore (which is pretty sad!)
Does anyone have a better idea for measuring the present number of Singaporean blogs?
If not, then it’s time to do a Singaporean blogger headcount…
