I’m back in San Francisco after a trip to London for the Happiness Engineer meetup. It’s serious business, but the group has managed to have a little fun along the way.
Our developers have been hard at work, too. In August, we launched the SoundCloud shortcode and WP.me, a URL shortener for WordPress blogs. And at your request, we introduced two new themes: iNove and Sandbox 1.6.1.
Here are last month’s stats:
426,047 blogs were created.
4,560,168 posts were published.
455,423 new users joined.
6,658,426 file uploads.
3,990 gigabytes of new files.
787 terabytes of content transferred from our datacenters.
2,153,498 active blogs and 22,855,350 active posts, where “active” means they had a human visitor.
1,267,201,336 pageviews on WordPress.com, and another 1,296,959,079 on self-hosted blogs (2,564,160,415 total across all WordPress blogs we track).
Other cool stuff:
You published 11,425 posts to your blogs using the Beta WordPress for BlackBerry app.

Looks like the kind of folks I’ve hung out with my entire life.
Great work this month!
Awesome stuff, keep up the great work! WordPress to grow more…
I can barely wait for newer and better themes, with custom headers. *wink wink* *nudge nudge*
Nice pic! London Eye!
People are so relaxed in this pic as if it is their home and not the middle of the earth and sky! :D
Please have a WordCamp in Chicago! I would love to participate in it. ^_^
Thank you for your continuing great service. You are the best blogging software I’ve ever used. Keep up the good work!
congrats for all the success, guys!
0,4 MM new blogs (including my own) in a month is amazing.
That looks like such a cool crew to work with! It’s good to see their smiling faces.
I love my iNove theme. Thank you.
I love blogging and I really dig WordPress. You guys rock.
Any chance of there ever being a WordCamp South Africa. What do you guys do on WordCamps anyway?
Where’s the suggestion box?
Feels nice to know that I’m part of those statistics.
Beautiful numbers! o.O
Coolio! I never been to London!
You are all wonderful….I hope you had fun…because you do serious work. You allow people like me to be heard! F R E E D O M is a gift not to be wasted….
Cool, thanks wordpress team!
Nice Stats With Nice Pic
what’s really amazing is how few of those blogs viewed are added to by the views of my blog! Maybe i should write more about p*rn, idols, stars and their babies or Michael jackson ;)
WordPress happiness in London.
It’s great to see some of the faces behind the monitor – on my home turf – hope your beers tasted better than they look….rather flat.
I really appreciate all the great work you guys do to make WordPress such an enjoyable experience. Cheers!
WordPress makes blogging real easy. It’s quite a thing you guys have achieved. Thank you.
That’s not London – it’s too sunny! ;-) Glad you all had a great time.
And the numbers continue to amaze. Just out of curiosity, has the “official” stats page (/stats/) been abandoned permanently? Always found that fascinating.
More simple themes, please!
Serious and relax. Nice face, beautiful scene. Great stats!
are you cheering w/ tea-&-lemmon? Anyway: Hoorrai WP!
this number is really impressive!
As a retiree, I no longer have an occupation. Instead now, I have a preoccupation! Thanks.
please get us cool themes really often…we are bored of these same themes..as the developers took a break..we need a change too..please…
Great job! Thanks.
Why do I feel so old looking at that photo!!!???!!!
Keep up the good work :)
Good stuff here. :)
What a nice group! Handsome boys, beautiful girls, all smashing.
nice to see faces and numbers too. more power to you guys!
WP rocks keep up the good work!
Thanks WordPress you really are the best blogging resource!
Cools faces! Amazing stats!! You people rock and I envy u.
You provided me an excellent opportunity to collect my interests and summarize them.
Keep nice work up. 3 column themes are hard to find. More three column, wide width
and custom header themes to would be more helpful.
We contributed 4 posts to that huge-a-normous number. Do we make you proud?
Awesome team… works hard and parties harder!!!!
A very nice picture of some very nice people. The gal in white in the middle looks like my beautiful daughter-in-law, who works for a computer software company. Have a great time!
WordPress is oding well as ever
any plans of a wordcamp in Indonesia?
Please have a followers gadget. That would be cool. Nice stats though!
ha! i’ve been waiting all month long to see these wonderful numbers! ;-) glad that you guys had fun in London!
btw, where is the bear? :-?
Keep up the good work. I’ll stay tuned in!
Thanks, thanks thanks!!! You guys offer a very good service :)

I’m brazilian and I didn’t even know about the Culture Minister’s choice. What a smart man! ;)
Wordpress rocking… as usual.
What awesome stats – brilliant job, everyone! Is there any WordCamp being planned for Johannesburg, South Africa?
Keep up the good work WordPress! My one complaint (if it weren’t for this problem, WordPress would be next-to-perfect…):
Go Word Press
Glady everyone is back safe and sound! I love being a part of the family!
How about a WordCamp Burning Man next year? You up for it Matt? You should do it for the t-shirts alone!
9,000,000 blogs total on WordPress and Club Penguin always seems to be taking over the WordPress Blogs of the Day.
Cool and good job, thanks wordpress team!
That sure is great :) And so nice looking people at the picture :D
I love me some WordPress.
This is great to see :D
Yeah im included in that :)

God!!! How I want to get there!!
Cool, glad we’re here! Thanks WordPress.
You are all wonderful I love some WordPress I alway you team members for making it so great
Fantastic! WordPress is great, awesome; which is why it is so popular!
What a happy bunch! You are all precious, Blessings, tons of them! We appreciate your commitment and hard work for WP.
thats terrific! GO WP!! :D
Thanks for fixing the spell check. That was the best thing you guys did all year.
Now for the next big fix—put in a great serach engine (the current one is not world class)..so that others and us can find the articles on our site. This would increase traffic to the site and help worldpress numbers too.
increase the blog space for us a nd give dedicated GALLERY options to upload some good stuff in our blog….
Great numbers, big thanks to the WP dev team. I love writing into my wordpress BLOG.
As a real newbie (as of today my first blog) – I am very impressed. Way to go WP

I’m one of those who create a new account in august (i had 2 almost dead blog hosted in blogger).
I’m really happy that i choose WP for my new blog.

Thank you WP. You make our life simple and complete.
