Wie have blogstats.de for german speaking blogs, but they only count .de blogs and if they ping any service. You can get listed with another top level domain and most interested people go through the hassle, because blogstats provides much better statistics than technorati and co in many ways.

But this does not count any german life journal, msn spaces, and so on. There are parts in the whole germanspeaking blogosphere don't have any clue about pinging, trackback etc, so they are going under the radar ... :(


Neville, for the Netherlands the number of blogs is estimated on 250,000 (excl. 500,000 MSN Spaces). Both figures were presented at Blognomics.

Recently I've done some research for the Scandinavian countries. Still have to work that out for a small article on Marketingfacts. Will keep you informed.


Croatia has about 25.000 bloggers and the blogosphere is only 1 year old but very fast caching on.
The first croatian blog tool www.blog.hr makes tremendouse progress into what is wide known as ''participative journalism''.
We have a function/button in blog editor called '' send this post to the editors'' and it helps to identify/report from the people who have news or something valuable to say.
I offend
wonder why nobody pays attention ( in Europe or US ) to this extremely successful experiment in Croatia ( mainstream media here are paying attention), very unique in world's terms.
