Windows Live Space Blogs Moving to WP

Microsoft announced last month that they are bowing-out of the blogging platform arena, leaving some 30 million bloggers behind, but not without an out: Windows Live Space bloggers will be able to move their blogs to WordPress and have their old URLs redirect readers to their new addresses. In fact, the new WP blogs will be integrated into MSN Messenger and the rest of Live Spaces.

While this is inconvenient for Windows Live Space bloggers, it is not without its upsides. WordPress is a far more robust blogging platform and its integration into the existing services should provide bloggers with features and possibilities Microsoft's own blogging platform cannot.
