WordPress.com and Windows Live partnering together and providing an upgrade for 30 million Windows Live Spaces customers by diTii

VIEWS: 104 PAGES: 2

									As we looked at how we brought Windows Live and WordPress.com together, there were three big
things we wanted to deliver:

   l   Giving existing Windows Live Spaces customers an easy upgrade of their blogging experience to
       WordPress.com
   l   Letting anyone connect their WordPress.com blog to Messenger so their Messenger friends are
       updated when they publish a new post on WordPress.com
   l   Allowing Windows Live customers to easily create new blogs on WordPress.com

Upgrading a Windows Live Spaces blog to WordPress.com

There are 30 million people who are actively using Windows Live Spaces and have been eagerly awaiting
the next set of new blogging features. For these customers, Windows Live and WordPress.com have
worked together to build a simple way to move your blog posts, comments, and integrated photos right
over to WordPress.com and start taking advantage of all their new features. And we’ll also redirect all
your old Spaces URLs to your new blog, so you don’t lose any visitors along the way. If you want to 
get started today, just visit your existing Space and you’ll see a prompt like this:




If you’re not ready to migrate today, you can also choose to download your blog content, migrate 
later, or delete your Space. There’s more information posted online to help you with your options, and
if you have additional questions on the migration, please visit the WordPress.com support center.

Easily share with your Messenger friends

With Messenger Connect, any website can easily give their customers the ability to share updates with
their Messenger friends, and WordPress.com has done exactly this.
So, if you have a blog on WordPress.com, we know that one of the things that is likely important to you is
the ability to share the blog with your friends. Of course, on WordPress.com, you can make the blog
public and people can subscribe to the blog via RSS or you can just email a link to the site. But when you
connect your Messenger account to Wordpress.com, you can have new posts on your WordPress.com
blog automatically send a notification for each new blog post to your Messenger friends’ feeds.

Windows Live customers getting started with a new blog

Starting today, when new Windows Live customers go to create a new blog on the web, we’ll help 
them create that new blog on WordPress.com. And when Windows Live Essentials 2011 releases later
this fall, Windows Live Writer will also use WordPress.com as its default blogging solution.
