Wordpress Becomes Default Blogging Platform in Windows Live

Sep 27, 2010

Move replaces Windows Live Spaces, adds 7 million users to WordPress.

 

Windows Live and WordPress.com are partnering to make WordPress the default blogging platform in Windows Live. Today at TechCrunch Disrupt Dharmesh Mehta, director of Windows Live product management made the announcement, which moves away from Windows Live Spaces, the current blogging platform.

 

The move to WordPress instantly gives the open source blogging CMS an additional 7 million users. Existing Windows Live Spaces users get 6 months to migrate their blogs to WordPress before they go bye-bye.

 

WordPress powers roughly 9 percent of all sites on the Web today and accounts for about 26 million active blogs.
