200,000,000 Posts… and Counting

This month we passed an impressive milestone: 200,000,000 posts have been published on WordPress.com.

Does this number surprise us? Not at all. Because we’ve long known that you — our users — have an infinite amount of things to share with the world.  From posts about your struggles with life and death, your favorite hobbies or your simple yet touching thoughts of the day, you are who we have to thank for helping us become the success we are today.

Onward and upward. And if you’re curious to know more about our stats, you’ll probably enjoy this page. Happy blogging!

    So many words.
    So much wisdom and nonsense, so much fact and so much fiction, some from the heart and some from the head.
    But all of it, thanks to you guys from WordPress. Great to have a tiny part in it all and to roam around so freely in this great community.
    Well done all of us.

    David W. Boles@ Just a guess: The average blog post should be around 200 words,which would make the total words ~40,000,000,000 words. In other words, a *lot* of writing.

    Hi Joy! Congratulations to WordPress on the high stats. Hey, do you guys have people at WordPress who stare mesmerized at the stats counter thinking 200,000,000, 200,000,010 200,000,022? Or is it just us bloggers who do that?

    This is only one drop in the immense Internet ocean. This is a new ocean in human history.
    In the past, we had the Holy Books as an ocean, the human soul as an ocean, nature as an ocean.
    Our virtual world is truly the combination of all other oceans by the human mind.
    Now, with the pride of this great invention, should we learn the lesson of mature humility or keeping on boasting with our childish discoveries? Should we cooperate to build the humanity oneness, in learning, loving, creating, to reach higher summit of rationality; or should we blindly struggle against ourselves in the outdated fronts of creationism, atheism, atomism, materialism, capitalism, and all sorts of other funny ism’s?
    Perhaps, each individual should learn with his own eyes and to answer all questions with his own mind, in order that he can advance along with all other individuals, like the drops of the ocean which exist together eternally as an unseparable unit.

    200,000,000 is a BIG figure! Almost 350 of them are mine. I know some bloggers who manage to post some 2,000 or 3,000 posts in just six months but most of them are just coy-paste things so I always wonder how few of us are really into this creative stuff of shaking our brains and bringing out unique class content.
