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.
