English isn’t the biggest language of the blogosphere

Also from the Technorati blog:

The following chart show the relative volume of blog posts based on the primary language of the post, on a month by month basis:

Something that may come as a surprise (at least to the English-speaking world) is that English isn't the biggest language of the blogosphere. In fact, English isn't even the primary language of one third of all posts that Technorati tracks anymore. Another interesting finding is that the Chinese blogosphere, which grew significantly in 2004 and 2005 (launches of MSN Spaces in Chinese, Bokee.com saw a peak of 25% of all posts in Chinese in November 2005) seems to be slowing down somewhat this year.

Also very interesting! That has a significant implication to any company making blog-related software… like reBlogger. 🙂
