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. http://eyebeforee.com/2013/04/01/eyebeforeseyi
I wish everyone a beautiful and happy New Month!
Love you all!
Really? Oh yeah, it’s still April fool. Love it!
Thank you dear publisher!!
“One hundred Billion dollars?”
nah, that’s so cheap! 🙂
Cheap? It’s ONE HUNDRED Billion dollars! Even at that, I don’t think WordPress will sell…
I also heard Amazon is moving their headquarters to Tibet…when that happens it will then be called: “Am a Zen” . . .
Hilarious, I love that Lawrence!!!
ah…you’re so easy to please! 🙂
Speaking of which, at the risk of plugging my own, I hope you will stop by and check out my own April “Fool’s” little ditty! :)…gotta love ‘New South Wales’…haha
Will do now! I love Wales, wish I could speak Welsh!
Is that right?
Hmmmm… I’m lost, can you write that in English? Sorry love….
“”April Fools’ Day, day on the first of April when friends and family play jokes on one another; April 1st marked typically by playing practical jokes “””
I think “they” should be paying “us” for the privilege of posting our material! 😛
Yeah you’re right! Don’t think that’s gonna happen though!
Shame. We could all retire and and sit producing posts and comments all day long. 😀
And that would have been lovely! 🙂
It has its moments. 🙂
Yeah it does! 🙂
Webstermadanhi@yahoo.ie could be charged for posting!
Meant “We” could be charged for posting! Auto complete messed up. Now your readers know my email add!
I can edit it if you want! I think we could still earn enough cash to pay for the posting… never thought of that angle before!! 🙂
Pliz do. Thanx.
Your email add didn’t show! 🙂
So long as we all get a cut 😉
Well said! 🙂
You got me!!! After Goodreads anything is possible….
Yes it could! just imagine if Amazon start paying us for writing what we love!
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 😀 😎
Yeah it does Uzoma, we would all retire as our account balance soars!!
I’m starting to think I may never get paid for my writing
Actually, I share similar thoughts.
And I guess WordPress would never ever sell. Never.
You can never tell Khaula, if they sell, we might enjoy our labour of love, if they don’t, we’ll still enjoy our labour of love. Either way, we’re cool, isn’t it? 😉
Hahah! That was awesome…
Yeah, we would still enjoy our labour of love.
You will, who knows what the future hold, I may actually be a prophet of hope! 🙂
You will in due time! Just don’t stop writing!!
FreedomTrapped, your email add didn’t show! Those WordPress dudes are cool!
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.
Thank you Anne for your kind comment. Thanks for also reading Ryan’s interview, he’s a cool guy!
Much love. 🙂
Great interview! 🙂
I love how the conversation (questions/answers) flowed. ANd – I like how it wasn’t long & drawn out.
Thanks Rosy, it was all Ryan’s style, I only provided the answers to his questions. Thanks for stopping by!
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 joke..lol. Keep on posting! http://wp.me/p2E0IW-aw
Thank you dear! I appreciate that!!!
Good lord, I hope that’s not true. O.o And thanks again for the interview Seyi, the pleasure was truly all mine. 😉
Thank YOU Ryan for stopping by, I’m sure I’ll sell loads of titles by that interview alone! God bless you!
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
Thanks Paulette, I’m glad you fell for it!!
That’s cause I love your site, lol. But…I still love and trust you. 🙂 🙂
Oh thanks, just hope Amazon and WordPress won’t sanction me for the pranks! 🙂 🙂
P.S. Just downloaded Tales of Five Lies from Amazon. Read the first part and love it and your writing. I’ll put up a review when I’m done. Have a great day.
Oh that’s so cool, thanks for that! Hope you’ll like it!!
Much love. 🙂
Can we use all that money… “lol” 🙂
Nah! Don’t think so! 🙂
Thanks he he he!! 🙂
Seyi, that was a great interview! It was nice to learn more about you.
Blessings ~ Wendy
Thank you dear friend! I hate any form of injustice but it’s here in our world all the same! Glad you stopped by!
Much love. 🙂
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?
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!!
I Nominate for Word Press Family Award
please accept and oblige
Thank you! I appreciate the gesture!
[…] Seyi Sandra […]

Don’t we all? 😦 Glad you love my posts! Yours are way up too! Thanks for the kind comment!!
