Microsoft announced last September that it would be shutting down its blogging platform, Windows Live Spaces and decided to move their existing blogs to WordPress.com. And it’s done now: Windows Live Spaces just doubled WordPress.com signups overnight!
Dharmesh Mehta of Windows Live reveals:
We thought it was worth taking a moment to highlight that, as of today, just over half a million Spaces blogs have now migrated to WordPress.com. On top of that, nearly half a million additional Windows Live customers have decided to create entirely new blogs on WordPress.com.
