October Wrap-Up

October was another busy and productive month. We released Publicize for Yahoo! Updates and Twitter, and upgraded the Theme Viewer for WordPress.com. Coming out of the Automattic team meetup in Québec City, we launched new image templates and mobile themes, and open sourced our After the Deadline proofreader. We also shipped WordPress 2 for iPhone and added support to VideoPress for Ogg, an open video format.

Many of us will be heading out to the Big Apple this month for WordCamp New York, and we hope to see you there!

Here are the stats for October:

  • 467,107 blogs were created.
  • 6,690,017 posts were published.
  • 494,186 new users joined.
  • 7,623,730 file uploads.
  • 4,986 gigabytes of new files.
  • 842 terabytes of content transferred from our datacenters.
  • 7,856,864 logins.
  • 1,405,459,558 pageviews on WordPress.com, and another 1,474,457,685 on self-hosted blogs (2,879,917,243 total across all WordPress blogs we track).
  • 2,509,895 active blogs and 25,386,866 active posts, where “active” means they got a human visitor.
  • 1,600,608,549 words.
