WordPress.com by the Numbers: The March Hot List

KMGN: Looking good WordPress!

The WordPress.com Blog

Talk about Spring thaw: you were quite the active bunch of bloggers in March. How impressive were your accomplishments last month? We dug out our solar-powered calculators and crunched some numbers. The results blew us away.

Stats to make your jaw drop

The past month was the second-wordiest of all time on WordPress.com: you wrote no fewer than 10,987,367,622 words. These made for 44,529,669 posts. Many were first posts by the more than 1.6 million new bloggers who joined us (it’s great to have you!).

We were honored to feature 260 exceptional pieces as editors’ picks on Freshly Pressed, from a history of selfies to a discussion of the death of a popular TV character — written by the actress who portrays her.

As you’d imagine, thoughtful posts inspire a great deal of interaction. This past month the community left 56,669,182 comments and clicked the Like button 8,105,067 times.

About Henrietta Handy

I am a Kentucky mountain girl far from home, perhaps far from the girl years. I am an aspiring writer with a wonderful husband who puts up with this writing and reading addiction I have. He also puts up with all of the yarn and knitting. I have four canine children and a ton of friends I love dearly. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 2 1/2 and have still managed to have a good life despite all the pain. So, I invite you to join me in this journey and just possibly have fun along the way.
