Amazon Bought WordPress?

An unconfirmed and unverified source informed us at the newsroom of Inner London Television Station (ILTV) that Amazon has bought WordPress at a whooping One hundred Billion dollars?

Is April Fool still on????


To all the folks at WordPress, just imagine if Amazon did buy WordPress, then we’ll be paid for every content we upload and publish… To really think about this, I don’t think it’s going to work, Amazon just acquired Goodreads and its mixed reactions all the way!

The above caption is mere fabrication…… ehmmm, there’s no truth in it!

Since that’s out-of-the-way, a very dear friend of mine interviewed yours truly, I’ll be grateful if you check it out, he’s an awesome guy.

I wish everyone a beautiful and happy New Month!

Love you all!

🙂 🙂

    “One hundred Billion dollars?”

    nah, that’s so cheap! 🙂

  3. I also heard Amazon is moving their headquarters to Tibet…when that happens it will then be called: “Am a Zen” . . .

    Poisson d’Avril!!

    I think “they” should be paying “us” for the privilege of posting our material! 😛

    So long as we all get a cut 😉

    You got me!!! After Goodreads anything is possible….

    Oh oh, I don’t think WordPress would sell at that price, perhaps something higher. But then anything can happen–if football clubs can sell, they would. For WP users that gives us special privilege, you know 😀 😎

    Hahaha good one Seyi! You had me there, only you will come up with something like this :-). I read Ryan’s interview and it’s really lovely to get to know you more.

    Great interview! 🙂
    I love how the conversation (questions/answers) flowed. ANd – I like how it wasn’t long & drawn out.

    The very first funny thing I have noticed about goodreads since the great Amazon heist is that Amazon is now the first retail store in the list where it used to be the last. Big shocker right?

      There is a proverb from Nigeria which says, ‘the owner of the drum dictates the tune’ Amazon dictates what happens in Goodreads now. You’ll be seeing several changes soon. Which ever way it goes, I hope it doesn’t affect writers and readers!

    I nominated you for a versatile blogger award. And no, it’s not an April Fool’s Day Keep on posting!

  15. Ryan Brooks says:

    Good lord, I hope that’s not true. O.o And thanks again for the interview Seyi, the pleasure was truly all mine. 😉

  16. OMG, you got me. I completely forgot it was April Fools Day and when I saw this I came to say Amazon is taking over world, after the Goodreads deal, etc. Good post. Happy day to you. 🙂 Paulette

    Can we use all that money… “lol” 🙂

  19. Seyi, that was a great interview! It was nice to learn more about you.

    Hmm…An April fools thing huh? That is something that is indeed worth considering. I do agree with the fact that if it was true, then that would actually make things worse for them seeing that their income stream would flow out of WordPress, more so than what would come in from their library.

    Your thoughts Seyi?

    • Seyi sandra says:

      You’re right! I don’t think they’ll sell because of loss of income, except they really had a good deal from Amazon! Thanks for stopping by old friend, it’s been a while!!
