Last Friday was a day of many milestones MailChimp for WordPress, which is by far my biggest WordPress plugin.
The plugin experienced some crazy growth since its first release, less than 2 years ago.
At exactly midnight UTC the plugin was downloaded for the millionth time.
In retrospect, just a little over a year ago the plugin was still at 100.000 downloads.
10.000+ downloads in 24 hours
While this is mostly due to people updating the plugin to the latest version, it is certainly a milestone I looked forward to.
Last Friday, the plugin was downloaded a staggering 12.000 times.
20 most popular plugins of all-time
Not sure how long this has been the case but MailChimp for WordPress is now featured on the “Most Popular” plugins sidebar on WordPress.org as #17.
We did a post on the MailChimp for WordPress Blog listing some numbers on the plugin.
I’m delighted to have reached those milestones and eager to continue this amazing journey.
A huge thank you to all plugin users for making this possible!
