San Francisco Party on Monday

If you’re in San Francisco or the Bay Area, you should come celebrate with us Monday as we ring in one meeeeellllion blogs. (As well as the release of version 2.2 on .org and the 4 year birthday since the first public release of WordPress!)

We’re going to be at a fun dive bar in Potrero Hill called Thee Parkside. You can sign up here on Upcoming. (The neighborhood is so cool it even has its own WP blog.)

The festivities will start around 8 PM, so come on out and I’ll buy you a beer.

    Perhaps you guys could highlight the WP Seniors someday, the people who have been on WP the longest.
    Happy anniversary.



  17. Priapus

    Congratulations! I’ve been very impressed with WordPress since I started using it a few months ago. Infinitely better than Blogger who I used to use.

    Thanks for the invite but I won’t be able to make it as I live in Cyprus. Please send money for beer instead.


  18. TheShortFatKid

    San Fran, Sman Fran!

    When are you guys going to make it out to Frederick, Maryland?

    Kidding of course have fun and congrats on one million blogs (I have my pinky to my mouth when I say that). It’s just a testament to the great service y’all provide.


  19. Avatar DJ Flux

    What a shame, I live only a dozen thousands miles away…
    Pity, that bar sounds a nice place to hang out of…

    Ciao from Rome, Italy

    I’ll toast to WP with a pint here!


  20. pinaldave

    Congratulations Matt on 1 M blog. There are many reasons behind WordPress success.
    Few are very prominent.
    1) Fast page loading for Dashboard as well as Blog.
    2) Excellent SEO
    3) Quick Support Answers and Forum
    4) Good Product (of course!)
    5) Bloggers. We are awesome and we love WordPress and our content is great. (We = All bloggers)


  21. tigerplug

    I may actually be on a business trip in that area. That’d be great. Cheers!

    Is there a special prize for the 1 millionth WordPress blogger?


  42. Zubli Zainordin

    Congratulations! We did it. It “Takes Seconds and is Free!” It has been so easy. Then, “register another blog.” It is so enticing. Yes, individuals like you, and individuals like us, together we shoot the number to…in the expression of Matt, I quote: “one meeeeellllion blogs”. During the celebration, please together we sing the song by Frank Sinatra, and change the “I” to “We”. Yeah, “and we did it our way…..” Although I am in Malaysia, and not any place or space near the San Francisco or the Bay Area, please know that I am drinking my beer, virtually, here, near every bloggers a major part of the magic number, who love so ever much and more. Salute!


  43. Daniel Bernier

    Get out! I’m in San Fran right now, and flying home tomorrow on an early flight.

    Unfortunately I will not be able to make it for all the reasons above. However I would like to thank you for my blog, which gives me detailed information about everything, as well as a blog that I don’t have to ping because it’s already done. I also would like to say that I love your homepage, I always find another blog to read that I can relate to, will make me laugh,cry, or just feel bewildered. Thanks

    Wow. I used to live down in the Mission District (19th and Florida) and humped up Potrero Hill to bar hop at night. Waaaaaaay back in the mid 80s. I worked at the Lou Pierson Sculpture Studio as a sculptor, whipping out Lou’s art from models and drawings. I think one of the bars used to be called “Top of the Hill.”

    Thanks for the blast from the past. Sorry I can’t make the party.


  72. Lance

    Also, since I have a WP blog, I guess this makes ME one in a million…I’ve always been “special.”
