is there really a "blogosphere"?

When you engage in blog debate, you can count on some idiot, sooner or later, to pop in with "the word blogosphere is ridiculous, you cannot use it without laughing".

For those new to the blog practice, "blogosphere" is a term used to refer to the entire group of sites that use a simple CMS (content management system) and feature frequent updates and reader comments.

Blogosphere is just as legitimate and valid a term as "business world", "democracy", "youth culture", "sports fans", "environmentalism", "Christendom", and other broad terms that are used so we can discuss a diverse but coherent group.
