Woo! I started 2 blogs last month, so there’s about 60 posts between them at least. I was never a blogger, but now I love them. More themes would be great! I’d really love to be able to add flash as well, but I’m guessing that won’t happen. Oh well, great site though, I love it!
Aug 11th at 7:57 am
Love the new look on the welcome page
Aug 11th at 12:29 pm
Would be kind of nice to have the running total wordcount for my own blog, actually. Any chance you could stick that in somewhere on the stats page? Would be something nice to boast about!

I remain very fond of WordPress. But of late, I have encouraged two friends to start blogs on WordPress, and they have both said: “it’s very slow compared to blogger”, and “the themes really need work”.
Aug 11th at 4:29 pm
Well, there are contributions of mine there, aswell
Aug 11th at 8:50 pm
WordPress never fails to amaze me!

Aug 12th at 9:41 pm
Aug 13th at 2:33 am
WOW!! Thats fantastic. Go WordPress
Aug 13th at 3:51 am
Alls well and good, but WordPress should deal with WORD and writing issues. WordPress has not addressed the following issues:
1) Spell Check STILL doesn’t work properly. It stops checking during the correction process, and eliminates spaces between words after the 2nd or thrid try at checking the spelling
2) There is no spell check for comments.
3) The search button is really basic and bad. tie in google search to WordPress.
4) Allow us to fix titles (font sizes) and headers on the blog without using CSI programming upgrade modules.
I am a power user and love WordPress, but you guys have to resolve the basic issues.
Aug 13th at 4:26 am
Amaziiiiiiiiiiing!!!!!!! – I bet the number have changed for even more (since each second has a new blog being created).
Aug 13th at 8:00 am
