Don't Look Back, Someone IS Gaining on You

Times Online - WBLG: Back from the summer break, Europeans get Blogging An interesting view of blogging form a UK Journalist.

It seems with summer over, there is an upsurge in European traffic to sites like Blogger and the rest.
While traffic to the blog publishing sites could mean people are launching new online diaries, it's more likely the majority are simply poking around to find alternative views and voices to the mainstream press.
Or the realization that the monopoly - once held - is gone.
Blogger visits by Britons grew at a rate of 7.5 per cent month-on-month in September to 7.9 million unique visitors, comScore says. While in absolute terms that is well behind, say, the BBC sites (18.7 million uniquely visitors from the UK in September), the growth rate suggests bloggers will be catching up with journalists in the near future.

Gulp.
I have to say that the Times (that's the REAL Times, not the New York Times) has some of the best news coverage anywhere.
