I am very proud with WordPress and its achievements. A true success story of opensource and community power.

[…] Even though I have not touched my blog for months on end it has still always been there when I’ve checked up on it. This reminds me of back in the day when other websites such as hotmail.com [before being swiped by Microsoft] offered free services and didn’t insist on users logging in every three months to keep their accounts active. I hope the WordPress team don’t introduce such limitations. At having just broken the 500 hundred thousand blogs mark I guess the service is still small manageable enough not to have to worry too much about introducing such measures. […]

Now if you only had $1 per blog 🙂

Or maybe you do……

Any idea what the post distribution looks like? Are most of these just casual bloggers or do they really get traffic?

Hm.

Wow not bad. But it is no wounder, because WordPress is one of the best weblog systems on the market. Reasons?
Its Free, easy to use, fast, a lot of functions etc.
Keep on the good work and soon the will be 1.000.000 wordpress blogs 🙂

Including several thousands of splogs… 😉 But congrat anyway. And I have reported one of them to your support team. The respond and removal of that splog was within some hours. Exelent responde-time. 🙂

[…] WordPress, unealta folosită de mine pentru a È›ine acest blog, este scrisă în PHP. Este una dintre cele mai populare aplicaÈ›ii de blogging È™i serviciul WordPress.com are È™i el un succes imens (Matt a anunÈ›at 500.000 de bloguri). Folosesc WordPress de ceva vreme È™i sunt mulÈ›umit, numai că utilizarea PHP-ului mă forÈ›ează la tot felul de hack-uri pentru a modifica felul în care se comportă o temă sau un plugin. […]

Congratulations to all involved. I was amazed at the extreme ease of use (before I used xoops, and before that hand-coding). Thanks for making the web an even more exciting place to be – and a more democratic one!

Great news wordpress! I’ve been a loyal user since April and I couldn’t have reached the traffic levels I’ve got on my DogBoston.com website without the ease of use (and the plugins) of WordPress.org software… Without WordPress, it would have been a LOT harder to get where we are today.

Congratulations and thanks for providing this great tool!

I’m really glad to be a part of this awesome “phenomenon”. I can’t wait to reach the “1 millionth” mark. I predict: year 2012. Thanks to wordpress for helping me put my face on the internet.
