Economic downturn and impact on javabloggers

I wanted to know if the economic crisis had an impact on blogging. I was curious because it seemed for me that the blogs that i usually follow had less activity . With the help of a groovy script and gchart, here’s the last 2 years monthly blog posts count (don’t know why there’s a high peak for July 07). It seems that, so far, java bloggers still post.

For the quality of the blog posts that’s another story but my blog is not a good example ;-)
