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.

- 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.

This is amazing all the things you do!

Well done wordpress! :)

omg, good statistic ;) Good luck to the next years… ;)
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.
Woooo Hoooooo! thanks guys and gals, WP is awesome and getting awesomer. Thank you
