How You can be a Part of the Success of WordPress
Powering 22 out of every 100 new active domains and 14.7% of the top million websites worldwide, WordPress has shown repeatedly that it is a viable force on the Web. In fact, in July, WordPress.com blogs exceeded the 50 million mark and each month there are 287 million people making 2.5 billion page views of WordPress.com blogs.
At his State of the Word address in July, Matt Mullenweg, founder of WordPress, credited the success of WP with the ease of use and its affordability. This ease of use and customization is due in part to the 15,000 plugins available at WordPress.com and WordPress.org.
