We spotted this today:

“Matt Mullenweg, creator of the WordPress blogging platform and founder of Automattic, will have big reason to celebrate this Sunday after the number of self-hosted and WordPress.com blogs passed the 50 million mark.

Today, WordPress has helped 350,2225 WordPress.com bloggers post 302,882 posts and over 270,000 comments. Roughly calculated, it means that 210 posts and 188 comments are submitted each minute. The stats page counts a total of nearly 77 million words written, almost double the size of the Encyclopedia Britannica.

That’s just WordPress.com users….in one day.”

  1. In 2003 a legend was formed that became the dominant force in blogging platforms today. The name of that legend as we know it is called WordPress. True there are many other free blogging platforms out there such as Blogger.com, but WordPress supersedes all others due to its sheer quality, and ease of use. Don’t believe me? Ask any other blogger out there and WordPress will be the one they recommend!
