I think for quite awhile now the self-hosted version of WordPress has been considered by most to be the dominant blogging platform, but up until recently it was purely speculation.
Last Friday, Royal Pingdom did some research and published the top blogging platforms based upon the Technorati Top 100 list. As you’d expect, WordPress took first place with 27 of the Top 100 blogs (5 more were hosted on WordPress.com). Of the self-hosted blogs, Movable Type is in second place with 12 blogs.
For your reference, here are the 27 WordPress blogs (links are included on the original post):
It is nice to see the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) and New York Times (NY Times) both listed here. It would be interesting if this study is done every year to see trends. I would imagine WordPress will be over 50% of the Technorati Top 100 list within a few years as some of those blogs switch away from Typepad, move their WordPress.com blog to self-hosted, etc.
