Windows Live Spaces to WordPress

Microsoft today announced the closure of Windows Live Spaces and migration of over 30 millions users will be migrated over to WordPress.com at TechCrunch Disrupt. Users data will be migrated through a process that preserves all the content to WordPress.com, all Windows Live Spaces blogs will also be redirected to the new WordPress.com domain.

Users will also have an option to download the information from their blogs and store or or delete it entirely. Windows Live Spaces will shut down within the next 6 months, giving users ample amount of time to make a decision before forced migration or deletion of data could take place.

WordPress is currently one of the best blogging solution for hosted as well as free blogging, and the 30 million additional users for the site will take their total blog tally to well over 50 million. WordPress currently powers over 8.5% sites across the internet.
