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.
