Weblogs.Us switching to WordPress

Filed under: — Carthik @ 5:01 pm

Weblogs.Us is a service that “helps people freely blog”. It is a hosted service, which is currently the home of about 800 MovableType blogs. Come November, all these blogs will be upgraded to WordPress.

The upgrade announcement expresses joy at WordPress’ wonderfully open and free licence, among other things. In any case, after the upgrade to WordPress, the maintainers of weblogs.us will not have to worry about having to pay fees on some future date.

Welcome, weblogs.us users, and we hope your transition to WordPress is smooth, J.D. and Co. Should you need help, the forums and the mailing lists are always available.

  5. Carthik, thank you for the kind words of welcome!

    Wordpress first impressed me when I converted 1,100 entries from my home built CMS to WordPress and then 1,700 more posts. Since that initial test I have been immensely impressed with WP’s capabilities, but even more so by the wonderful community that surrounds WP.

    It only makes since that an organization promoting free blogging should be using a free, open, infrastructure. That means Wordpress is the answer for Weblogs.us :-)

    Again, my thanks to you and the entire WordPress community. I look forward giving back to the community that has given so much.

    Respectfully,
    -JD

  7. Great decision to go with WP. Once I found out that MT was going to start charging, I went a looking for the next best or better thing, and I think I found a wonderful replacement in WordPress, and I believe you and your users will to.
