A note on blogging ...

Don't look now, but every second a new blog is born:

The blogosphere is continuing to grow, with a weblog created every second, according to blog trackers Technorati.

In its latest State of the Blogosphere report, it said the number of blogs it was tracking now stood at more than 14.2m blogs, up from 7.8m in March.

It suggests, on average, the number of blogs is doubling every five months.
Pretty amazing stuff.  And we have been feeling the effects here at the BruinsNation.  Just this week we passed the mark 20,000 unique visitors and 46,000 page views.  Thank you to all our readers who keep coming back to our site.  Thank you to all our diarists who are putting up their own blogs passionately discussing UCLA football or basketball, even though we may not see eye to eye all the time.

Of course we are just getting started over here.  BruinsNation has been up and running just a little over six weeks, and we are going to be pumping out posts on all cylinders throughout this football and basketball season.  And yes we are going to keep writing about UCLA (our alma mater) with our without Dorrell.  No one is going to discourage us from putting up informed, honest, brutal, candid takes on Bruin sports based on facts, statistics and common sense - which we call reality.

So thanks again to everyone who keep coming back. We hope you will stay with us, lurk, comment on the center page, put up your own diaries, help us grow, and help us grow this community, which will be providing facts and analysis to help counteract the inevitable lack of those elements and endless Circulo/Blindo manic-depressive, passive-aggressive, cognitive dissonance exhibited by those who are bigger supporters of Karl Dorrell than they our of our football program.

I am taking off for a much needed vacation today. I will be out till end of next week.  Meanwhile, Odysseus and Ajax will be firing away here at the BruinsNation.  Your nation.  I am off to sailing around the islands somewhere up North:
