According to Pingdom, a leading website monitoring service, WordPress is used by 52% of the most prominent blogs in the world in 2013. The number represents an increase in four percentage points from last year.

WordPress, which powers 65.3 million blogs as of May 7, is used by  TechCrunch, Mashable, Ars Technica, and Laughing Squid.

Other blogging platforms of choice include Custom (12%), Drupal (7%), Gawker (5%), and BlogSmith (4%).

Pingdom based its study on Technorati’s Top 100 Blogs list and did not differentiate between WordPress hosted and WordPress self-hosted.
