 Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet and Society has focused on
this over the years, for one. Here's a starting place:

 Dear Community Members,
 I would like to learn the various methods and tools used to
determine
 the total number of blogs in a given region? Has anyone attempted
such
 an endeavour and what were there findings? I would like to explore
 this for my country to identify the number of blogs in Pakistan,
 categorize them within active and non-active (within a given
criteria
 of number of posts) etc. Kindly point me to available work,
 methodology, tools if any, how such data mining would actually be
 carried out etc.
 Appreciating your support in advance.

 Regards.
