A year ago (Back in 2003) in my girlfriend’s basement weblogs.us was born. Now a year later and 800 1,600 noncommercial blogs later, I’m happy to announce some changes.
#1 switching to WordPress for all new users, and any old users that want to switch. Repeat, existing users can stay with MT 2.66 🙂 [this section clarified in response to Chris’s comments and posts]
#2 adding FTP support
#3 increasing storage space from 100MB to 1GB.
#4 adding full statistics reporting
#5 plus a few other treats…
if there’s anything missing, that you would like added, please let me know! This switch will be for any of our current users. Once everyone that wants to is switched and happily blogging, we will start on the hundreds of people that signed up in our queue, and finally we will reopen signups to the world (possibly using an invitation system much like Gmail uses.)
I would especially like to thank all the great people in our community. Over the past year I’ve met and shared ideas with so many people from all over the world that I can hardly believe it. Thank you all for being so awesome!
I’m very excited to be working with new software that has a wonderfully open and free license, as well as investing in the hardware that will insure weblogs.us users have a free place to blog for as long as they want. If anyone doesn’t like WordPress, I would suggest TypePad or one of the other great hosts out there.
