WordPress.com Downtime Lowdown
February 18, 2010
This blog, like millions of others, is hosted at WordPress.com. I’ve been very happy with the service.
I’m still happy with it, despite today’s downtime. I have to applaud Matt’s downtime summary. He didn’t attempt to downplay the downtime. He quantified it, to the tune of 5.5 million lost pageviews (not all of which are mine, I must admit).
I had to smile when I first saw the news about the downtime. It was a Mashable post about “tweets pouring in.” That just reinforced to me how much more robust WordPress.com is than Twitter, which I still think functions best as the home for the fail whale.
