WordPress Powers 50 Million Websites

The official stats over at WordPress.com have been updated to count WordPress installations as well as WordPress.com blogs, and the total number of WordPress-powered sites has just reached a startling 50.1 million!

For comparison, that’s just a little bit less than the populations of California and Florida combined, and about 19% of all known sites on the web.

For those of you who were here when WordPress began in 2003, did you ever imagine that its use would spread so rapidly?
