May Wrap-up

Another day turns into another month and brings us another wrap-up post. I’m currently in a remote undisclosed location but nothing could stop me from blogging to you. It’s not all bad — here’s my desk at the moment:

Laptop at pool by beach

What more could you need?

Here’s the action from last month:

  • 221,343 blogs were created.
  • 245,156 new users joined.
  • 2,638,958 file uploads
  • About 1,074 gigabytes of new files.
  • 417 terabytes of content transferred from our datacenters.
  • 3,415,871 posts and 1,120,407 new pages.
  • 5,862,782 comments.
  • 4,865,114 logins.
  • 693,555,035 pageviews on WordPress.com, and another 441,241,199 on self-hosted blogs. (1,134,796,234 pageviews total across WordPress blogs we track.)
  • 71,351,276 pageviews in RSS feeds.
  • 965,041 active blogs, where “active” means they got a human visitor.
  • 156,693,165 unique people visited WordPress.com-hosted blogs.

We introduced some cool stuff in May including the Monotone theme, Identicons, a new admin bar, and threw a bitchin’ party to celebrate WordPress’ fifth. What’s in store for June? I don’t know, but it’ll be hawt.
