WordPress says that the one millionth blog will be created on the wordpress.com platform sometime next week, which also happens to be their 4 year launch anniversary.
Last August the site had just 300,000 blogs, 1.6 million daily page views and 14.2 million unique monthly visitors. CEO Toni Schneider says they now have 7.5 million daily page views and 45 million unique monthly visitors. Scobelizer is no longer the largest blog on WordPress.com, although it is still in the top 5, as is GigaOm’s Web Worker Daily.
U.S. Comscore data shows that Blogger, Six Apart (in aggregate), and Live Spaces are still bigger than WordPress .com. Comparison chart is below.
