July Wrap-Up

July was an awesome month. We released our Open Source iPhone app and rolled out updates on WordPress.com in tandem with version 2.6 on WordPress.org. Here’s the stats rundown:

  • 257,163 blogs were created.
  • 271,427 new users joined.
  • 3,110,479 file uploads
  • About 1,381 gigabytes of new files.
  • 395 terabytes of content transferred from our datacenters.
  • 4,868,359 logins.
  • 812,287,538 pageviews on WordPress.com, and another 567,059,283 on self-hosted blogs (1,379,346,821 pageviews total across WordPress blogs we track).
  • 1,102,039 active blogs and 13,216,843 active posts where “active” means they got a human visitor.

Other interesting stuff:

We signed on The Real Dan Lyons as a VIP blogger (though you may know him as the Fake Steve Jobs).

You added more tags and categories than ever before: more than 8 thousand tags and 19 thousand categories.

You made great use of our new caption feature: more than 75 thousand in its first month.

Writers for Maclean’s, Canada’s only national weekly current affairs magazine, now blog with WordPress VIP.

    Golly that is a lot of stuff, and from all over the world too. I feel like my blog is but a grain of sand on a beach or a tiny drop in a vast ocean. And being part of this vast set up is incredibly important to me. At my age (nearly 76) many friends and family members are no longer with us and I have lost many contacts, but the Internet has kept me alive and on my toes. Thank you for providing me with the means to reach out to others — all over the world!
