A look at my last review:- My Review for 2010
I find it amazing that the WordPress team were able to put this altogether, if you have a look at the WordPress stats on all their blogs here (interactive map) you will see there are about 500,000 new posts, and 400,000 comments a day. Also over 310 million people view 2.5 billion pages each month.
There was a couple of mistakes in my stats, number of posts, and some URL’s were not right, but if you look at the big picture, and the number of blogs that WordPress have it is amazing that they were able to do this.
My Stats for the 1st day of 2012.
I would like to Thank all my readers for there support, and Thank You very much to all the people who have taken the time to comment.
