I just discovered this about an hour ago by mistake, while attempting to see my blog site stats on another computer — it is a fun page for stats junkies like myself to visit. Here’s a partial screenshot I took about a minute ago.
In the last 30-45 minutes, almost 5000 new WordPress blogs were created. Mindbloggingly cool, isn’t it? 🙂
If you want to see a live look at Posts, Comments, and Likes in the WordPress.com blogging community as they happen via a zoomable Google world map, plus an idea of how many WordPress sites there are in the world, visit en.wordpress.com/stats. It’s almost as good as the 2013 Year in Review (which is also available at the top of your own blog site stats page, and would have gotten generated for you if you had a blog for at least a year). Almost. 🙂
