Another underdog has risen up to the challenge and pulled out an upset.
Tumblr, a micro-blogging website that a few months ago had seven million individual blogs, has overtaken WordPress in popularity by nearly tripling in size.
According to a Mashable blog post, Tumblr has taken a slim, 85,000-blog lead over its competitor. Mashable, incidentally, uses WordPress to host its content.
It should be noted WordPress.com’s blog count doesn’t include sites people host themselves using open source software provided by WordPress.org, Mashable points out.
