February was a good month for us, production-wise. We brought you a new theme, a new and improved LiveJournal import tool, and threaded comments. Elsewhere, Automattic launched BuddyPress, a set of WordPress MU plugins that transforms a WordPress MU install into a social network platform. We also launched the I <3 Blogging design contest, in partnership with Infectious (which ends on March 30).
Here are the stats from February:
- 351,904 blogs were created.
- 385,033 new users joined.
- 4,577,845 file uploads.
- 2,926 gigabytes of new files.
- 776 terabytes of content transferred from our datacenters.
- 7,964,018 comments.
- 6,436,398 logins.
- 1,022,236,821 pageviews on WordPress.com, and another 948,586,171 on self-hosted blogs (1,970,822,992 total across all WordPress blogs we track).
- 1,039,553 active blogs and 19,015,974 active posts where “active” means they got a human visitor.
- 1,348,400,618 words.
You subscribed to 641,150 comment threads, using our new comment subscription feature.
There was a whopping seven WordCamps in February: WordCamp Higher Ed North East, WordCamp Paris, WordCamp Germany, WordCamp Miami, WordCamp India, WordCamp Education Vancouver, WordCamp Denver. (The next WordCamp is WordCamp Hong Kong, on April 5.)

WordPress’ success is a tribute to your innovation, care, and hard work. Keep it up! The best is yet to come.

I have been so glad that the new theme “Vigilance” came along. I really like being able to choose the background colors because it makes the blog seem more pleasing. I don’t know CSS and therefore cannot use that option; but, that’s okay. Since I’m quite new to blogging, I’m more than satisfied and happy for this opportunity. Thank you very much for being such a wonderful team. All your efforts are greatly appreciated.
