Just how popular is blogging?

Popular enough for North Carolina to hold their own Science Blogging Conference. Now is it just me or is this the start of something? A state conference around blogging, and specific to a field like science.  How long before your state has a Educational Blogging Conference and is there such thing as a National or International Blogger Con? The cool thing about this is I just e-mailed the Science Blogging Conference wiki page to all my Science Teachers. What a resource! Might want to add a Science Blogger feed to your aggregator. 😉
