WordPress.com is a community of diverse bloggers. We realize this every day when we read posts covering so many different topics.
Our community is strikingly diverse in other important ways. Did you know that almost a third of the people visiting our blogs are reading non-English posts and pages — content written in more than 100 other languages?
