There are tons of people using WordPress. And I mean tons. Just alone this month, over 8,811 WordPress.com users have signed up and over 8,648 WordPress.com blogs have been created. That’s not even counting self-hosted WordPress blogs/sites!
The majority of people using WordPress, are using it as a blog, but there are also a lot of other sites using WordPress for marketplaces, galleries, portfolios, and even contest systems.
Among the tons of WordPress powered sites, there are quite a few “big boys” who also use WordPress.
Yahoo’s corporate blog, Yodel Anecdotal, is powered by WordPress 2.3.2.
