Windows OSLB-migration Doubles Monthly Signup WordPress.com

WordPress.com Signups Double

The migration of Windows Live Spaces users to WordPress.com contributed to a doubling of its monthly signups, WordPress.com says in a blog post on November 29 2010.

The decision to move Microsoft Windows Live Spaces bloggers to WordPress.com was announced in September during TechCrunch Disrupt.

From the WordPress.com announcement:

Since then, we’ve seen an explosion in the number of sites joining WordPress.com every day. With the addition of Windows Live Spaces sites moving to WordPress.com, Windows Live users who are new to blogging coming here, and word-of-mouth from our current and very passionate users, the number of people joining WordPress.com has doubled to over 900,000 per month (up from around 400,000 per month before the migration). We’re thrilled to see this explosion and to be introducing so many people to publishing with WordPress.

The blog-post further gives users advise on how to avoid losing data in the transition process. Read before you transfer!
