WordPress.com adds milestone badges and notifications

Automattic has added a bunch of new enhancements to their WordPress.com blogging platform.

Bloggers would now get badges for crossing milestones like x number of followers.

They would also be notified on some other milestones like days when they gain the maximum number of followers or likes.

WordPress.com developers said:

We all blog for different reasons. Some might chronicle their travel adventures; others might detail their culinary undertakings. If you find a post or a blog you enjoyed, like it or follow the blog — your action might send them a badge and make them smile.
