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.
1,267,201,336 pageviews on WordPress.com, and another 1,296,959,079 on self-hosted blogs (2,564,160,415 total across all WordPress blogs we track).
Other cool stuff:
You published 11,425 posts to your blogs using the Beta WordPress for BlackBerry app.

I can barely wait for newer and better themes, with custom headers. *wink wink* *nudge nudge*

Nice pic! London Eye!
People are so relaxed in this pic as if it is their home and not the middle of the earth and sky!
Sep 4th at 6:16 pm
Please have a WordCamp in Chicago! I would love to participate in it. ^_^
Thank you for your continuing great service. You are the best blogging software I’ve ever used. Keep up the good work!
Sep 4th at 7:15 pm

0,4 MM new blogs (including my own) in a month is amazing.

I love my iNove theme. Thank you.
Sep 4th at 9:23 pm
I love blogging and I really dig WordPress. You guys rock.
Any chance of there ever being a WordCamp South Africa. What do you guys do on WordCamps anyway?
Where’s the suggestion box?
Sep 4th at 9:45 pm
Feels nice to know that I’m part of those statistics.
Sep 4th at 9:55 pm

Nice Stats With Nice Pic
Sep 5th at 9:37 am
what’s really amazing is how few of those blogs viewed are added to by the views of my blog! Maybe i should write more about p*rn, idols, stars and their babies or Michael jackson

WordPress happiness in London.
Sep 5th at 9:51 am
It’s great to see some of the faces behind the monitor – on my home turf – hope your beers tasted better than they look….rather flat.
I really appreciate all the great work you guys do to make WordPress such an enjoyable experience. Cheers!
Sep 5th at 10:00 am
WordPress makes blogging real easy. It’s quite a thing you guys have achieved. Thank you.
Sep 5th at 10:18 am
That’s not London – it’s too sunny! Glad you all had a great time.
And the numbers continue to amaze. Just out of curiosity, has the “official” stats page (/stats/) been abandoned permanently? Always found that fascinating.
Sep 5th at 10:27 am
More simple themes, please!
Sep 5th at 1:23 pm
Sep 5th at 1:59 pm
Serious and relax. Nice face, beautiful scene. Great stats!

Sep 5th at 8:27 pm

Cools faces! Amazing stats!! You people rock and I envy u.
You provided me an excellent opportunity to collect my interests and summarize them.
Keep nice work up. 3 column themes are hard to find. More three column, wide width
and custom header themes to would be more helpful.
Sep 6th at 5:33 pm
We contributed 4 posts to that huge-a-normous number. Do we make you proud?
Sep 6th at 6:03 pm
Awesome team… works hard and parties harder!!!!
Sep 6th at 6:08 pm

Sep 12th at 5:16 am
Thanks for fixing the spell check. That was the best thing you guys did all year.
Now for the next big fix—put in a great serach engine (the current one is not world class)..so that others and us can find the articles on our site. This would increase traffic to the site and help worldpress numbers too.
Sep 12th at 7:01 pm
increase the blog space for us a nd give dedicated GALLERY options to upload some good stuff in our blog….
Sep 13th at 12:09 pm
Great numbers, big thanks to the WP dev team. I love writing into my wordpress BLOG.
