    Um, I think I was most of those logins. What can I say? I like to check stats.

  2. blayde

    Woohoo 3 terabytes a day, thanks for letting us suck that much juice out of the internets!

  3. eli

    it makes me really proud of you guys when i look at the footer of one of those HUGE blogs (people, cnn) and see the “powered by WordPress.com” tag. hip hip hooray!

  4. dahi

    Very good,May it be easy …

  5. કાર્તિક મિસ્ત્રી

    Cool stats!!

  6. lojol

    By my crude calculations there is on average 1 comment made for every post or page. On the most popular blogs there are plenty of comments, but personally I think it would be good to encourage more viewers to comment on less popular blogs, thus increasing their popularity.
    Is it possible to make comment writing easier? For example, why not mark which fields are necessary and which are optional when submitting a comment; maybe some viewers are put off by the amount of information requested.

    wow, great achievement. Congratulations ! :)

  17. Fernando T.

    Muchas y buenas noticias a las que tengo que expresar mi satisfacción porque el español sea de los idiomas mas utilizados en los blogs. De ahí mi post en esta gran lengua que nos aúna a tantos millones.

    Un saludo y felicidades a toda la comunidad WordPress.

    A good deal of data to swallow. Any graphs to help us understand the significance of these data points?
    Interesting to know about home page visits. Monitoring our stats, we don’t necessarily see these as separate hits. And now that we don’t see RSS reads, we have very limited data on broader reading habits.

  41. Andrew

    Congratulations on another big month.
    So mapped domains account for 29% of pageviews, eh? Care to tell us what % of active wp.com blogs? It’ll be rather lower than 29%, perhaps not even in double figures, methinks.

  42. Rae

    That’s alot of people.

    Great! The statistics is awesome. Yet, for me the best thing is not the statistics but the user experience. It’s funtastic. I really love it!

    I love to post article through Firefox – ScribeFire. That’s much better than WLW and Ecto. How many people using those Firefox – ScribeFire? I wonder…

    Congratz! You guys give us the best blogging platform. And free? That’s the best news so far.

    Really the WORDPRESS.COM is doing a commendable job at its command. The Walled World is
    collapsing and turning into an open Wall-less Gateless World. It’s not just the mere computer to computer connectivity, but the people to people connectivity and interaction, exchange and dissemination of views and visions from the minds and hearts on a timeless global scale that matters. And that job being facilitated by WordPress.com is really heart-opening. Only
    live and spontaneous exchange of human minds and thoughts, the triggering of taking and transforming huamanity on a new height of consciouness and awareness on a global scale is possible.
