The Blogging Second Life guide lists over 2000 SL blogs, as I blogged recently, and here's another impressive number from that site, which is also an important data point to how large the SL economy is: It lists over 1400 SL stores, over 450 of which maintain a store blog, as well. All this has been compiled by Evelyn Hartshon (pictured here), who works with Cajsa Lilliehook on the site:
"Out of roughly 620 women's clothing stores," she tells me, making a rough guess, "442 have blogs and 58 have Flickr accounts." (And that's just one category of store, as there are over a dozen of them.) "We now have exactly 1400 stores listed on Blogging Second Life. In the last 30 days, we have added around 50 (excluding duplicate applications) stores. The Women's Clothing page has the most amount of stores (620) followed by the Stores Selling Mesh (294) then Home & Garden (231)."
