Political candidates used blogging to express their opinions, some made breaking news! For example, Senate Majority Leader, Trent Lott had praised U.S Senator Strom Thurmond, stating that the United Stated would have benefited if Thurmond that been elected president in 1948.

An estimated $100 million worth of blog ads are sold this year. 2006 Google pays $900 million to become the exclusive provider of MySpace.com. According to Technorati's report, there were 50 million blogs by mid-2006. Mainstream Media teamed up with established bloggers with existing blogs like Mashable and CNN to post their articles. 2007 Tumblr was launched and the term "Microblog" popularised further. Tim OʻReilly formed a bloggers code of conduct. 2008 Posterous is launched, it allows bloggers to post short updates using its own URL shortening service. Posterous gave bloggers a quick way to post their updates via email or online chat. 2009 The Universal McCann report revealed 77% of internet users read blogs. Tecnorati reported that 15% of bloggers spend 10+ hours a week blogging. 20% of users blog via mobile device and 28% make money from blogging. 2010 A study by Technorati revealed that approximately 35% of bloggers were making money from their blogs.

Mom bloggers in the USA become more influential as they share recipes, product reviews and parenting tips. 2011 Google launches Google +, a new social media platform for bloggers whilst still in Beta, it has been accepted and used widely by bloggers.

With a rise in the social media presence in 2012 and all expectations of an increase in sharing via the mediums, expect to see blogs linked and also shared to more of a degree across the Internet. MORE BLOGS FOR BLOGGERS Studies by American company Technorati suggest that individual bloggers are managing more sites. Their figures show that bloggers went from having 2 blogs on average, each in 2010 to 3 each this time last year. Which would suggest that we will see more people managing more blogs in 2012. CORPORATE BLOGS Though once a wild un-moderated space, expect to see more brands jump on the blogging bandwagon to help with a number of aims. We more than likely will see blogs increase not only in numbers, but also in the number of posts in the coming year. This is especially the case with expectations that Google will index more and more because of fresh content. PROFESSIONALS As the blogging sphere grows expect to see more people come professionally into the field. It is expected that professional bloggers may soon be able to make ends meet and not use blogs as a supplementary. Also we will possibly see more and more brands look to get influencers on social media to follow blogs - which could open further doors. TO BE CONTINUED.
