The State of the Word
WordPress.com is a version of WordPress that is hosted and completely maintained. Thousands of people every day are creating blogs on the WordPress.com service, which has just begun to explore its capabilities.
WordPress is an open source blogging tool used by everyone from Rosie OʻDonnell to the New York Times, and WordPress.org is its community home. WordPress has grown from a tiny project to what is by many accounts the most popular downloadable blogging software in the world.
