The BBC says 2007 was a big year for bloggers being imprisoned. Worldwide there were 36 confirmed cases of people being arrested for blogging and certain organizations suspect, but cannot verify, that hundreds of more people were.

"The report predicted that the number of blogger arrests in 2008 would exceed the 36 seen in 2007 thanks to greater popularity of blogging as a medium, greater enforcement of net restrictions, and elections in China, Pakistan, Iran and the US."
