In September this year, Microsoft announced a partnership with WordPress.com to let customers connect their Windows Live Spaces blog with WordPress.com services.
Microsoft now said that as of today, "over half a million Spaces blogs have now migrated to WordPress.com."
"On top of that, nearly half a million additional Live customers have decided to create entirely new blogs on WordPress.com. And for each of those nearly 1 million new people now blogging on WordPress.com, there're, of course, many more new blog visitors also now going to WordPress.com," added Microsoft.
"People are continuing to migrate their Spaces blogs over to WordPress.com, and to those of you who haven't gotten around to it yet, we want to remind you that you'll need to do so before March 2011.
As part of this partnership, we're helping customers to migrate their existing Spaces blogs over to WordPress.com, and we're using the power of Messenger Connect to help customers share their blog posts with their Messenger friends, said Microsoft," stated Microsoft.
