Automatically Generate Monthly Reviews with Best WordPress Posts Plugin

Posted: 12 Nov 2008 02:00 AM CST

Have you ever noticed how many high profile bloggers like to offer a monthly review post at the end of each month featuring their top posts for that month?   This is a common tactic used by bloggers to recycle some old posts and promote some of their best work.

If you’d like to do something like this, or already are, you might want to check out a new WordPress plugin called WP Best Posts Summary.   The plugin will automatically generate a summary post daily, weekly, or monthly (you control this from the Options panel) and allow you to set how many posts to use.  Here is an example of how it will look:

You can download or get more information about the plugin here.

WordPress.com Releases October Statistics

Posted: 11 Nov 2008 06:30 PM CST

Somehow I missed this yesterday, so I’m making up for it now with this post.  It looks like WordPress released their monthly wrap-up for October yesterday, complete with an announcement of their first billion-impression month!   That is a hard number to wrap your head around if you really think about it, making it a great accomplishment.

Here are the October statistics for WordPress.com by Matt:

  • 323,786 blogs were created.
  • 343,832 new users joined.
  • 4,085,148 file uploads.
  • 1995.86 gigabytes of new files.
  • 531 terabytes of content transferred from our datacenters.
  • 8,862,195 comments.
  • 1,309,045 logins.
  • 1,088,583,200 page views on WordPress.com, and another 738,282,634 on self-hosted blogs (1,826,865,834 total across all WordPress blogs we track).
  • 1,418,933 active blogs and 16,599,550 active posts where "active" means they got a human visitor.
  • 1,179,018,712 words.

Bonus statistic:

  • 53,290 PollDaddy polls added this month — a 1250% increase from September!

It is good to see WordPress.com continue to grow and expand at such a rapid rate.
