How many Relay bloggers?

Over the weekend I started using blog search tools like PubSub and Technorati to search for mentions of Relay For Life in blogs. What I found amazed me. If you go to Technorati and type in "relay for life" (in quotes) and search you get 2,363 hits. I copied and pasted the first two pages of summaries below. The HTML links work and take you to the blogs.  My growing impression is that there are many, many people involved with Relay who blog about the event. There may be a community of Relay bloggers out there, but they don’t have connections to each other.
