Almost… It seems that only yesterday WordPress had 500,000 users, and before that it didn’t even exist. Remember when the .com didn’t exist?
So when was 500,000? It was actually November 28th, 2006.
It still doesn’t BTW (by the way) but, almost.
Currently WordPress.com is boasting, 986,436 as/of/May 19th 2007. That is roughly 500,000 new blog works-in-progress in 6 months; or about 2800 new blogs a day. Check out WordPress founder, Matt Mullenweg, & his thoughts about it all in an interview below.
