WordPress Gaining Almost 1 Million New Users A Month?

After Microsoft announced that it was shutting down Windows Live Spaces and turning the keys over to, it looks like the number of monthly signups to has more than doubled which spells good news for Automattic (the company behind WordPress).

With the addition of Windows Live Spaces sites moving to, 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 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. (Official WordPress Blog)

Microsoft confirms the number of successful migrations to half a million, with the company also reporting that an additional 400,000 former live space users have chosen to skip the migration process entirely and instead start afresh upon a new blog.
