Guinness gets into social media: Blogger earns world record for most blog posts ever

by Knowlton Thomas

A congratulations is in order for Darren Murph, the dedicated Engadget blogger. The blog's most frequent writer has now been recognized as the entire world's most frequent writer, having been awarded the first ever Guinness World Record for “most prolific professional blogger.”

This award is the result of him composing more than 17,000 posts as of the end of July, which works out to more than 10 blog posts per day over four years, with a total word count of roughly 3.4 million (bringing his average word count per post to a somewhat puny 200 words). His one-day record (not recognized by Guinness) was a whopping 59 posts.

I'm curious to see which social media-related world record is handed out next. These things are easy to quantify, being so metric-based, but it's hard to judge which feats are actually worthy of a framed plaque.
