Diamond Geezer recently posted his annual analysis of how many blogrolls he appears in. Unsurprisingly, perhaps, the number is steadily declining and he finds it harder to find new blogs to add to his list.

I thought it might be interesting to look at the blogging platforms used by the 98 blogs listed. Here are the results:

  • Blogger 60
  • WordPress.com 11
  • WordPress.org 11
  • Typepad 4
  • MovableType 3
  • Livejournal 2
  • Canalblog 1
  • Drupal 1
  • ExpressionEngine 1
  • Nucleus CMS 1
  • Serendipity 1
  • Guardian (journo) 1
  • Custom 1

The dominance of Blogger/Blogspot didn’t surprise me that much. I have noticed before that it’s very popular amongst UK bloggers; particularly veteran bloggers who maybe had less choice avaiable that the plethora of options available today.

Which blogging platform do you use and why ?
