The WordPress.com front page gives the number of blogs hosted at the site. It’s approaching two million. But how many of them are active?
There are over half a million active blogs at WordPress.com, according to Matt’s November wrap-up. But what does “active” mean? It means at least one human pageview.
I’m (even) more impressed with the half-million than with the two million. I’ll look forward to the annual wrap-up: 2007 has been a big year for WordPress.com and for Automattic.

Thanks for writing this. I too question the validity of the definition of “active” (one page view) when it comes to counting wordpress.com blogs.
I agree that one page view seems like a rather lenient definition of “active blog.” On the other hand, it’s probably as good a definition as there is. And I say “Good for Matt” for putting the definition right there next to the number of active blogs.
“active” is pretty nebulous, a human page view seems like as good a definition as any.
Anyone is welcome to review http://wordpress.com/stats/ and suggest other interpretations 😉
