Movie special blog took around six months for a PR3. Internet Executive Log took around 9 months for a PR2. PHHbBbtt! :P The aforementioned are both Blogspot hosted blogs. Voyage echoes in the wind & Money at the mouth took around 4 months for a PR2 without much effort. Both are hosted on a domain that I own & a hosting service that I purchased. It seems that own hosted blogs have an advantage in terms of Google PR & Alexa rankings too!
