If you are into problogging, you definitely know the importance of how many words you have already typed. Advertisers always require the number of words for each paid post that you accept for your blog. Self-hosted WP blogs do not have an installed word counter, you can install a plugin for this though.

When you’re done with your composed article/post, simple cut and paste in the provided box (or the other way around) as shown below, then click the calculate words and that’s it!
