Is it true Wix's own Blog actually runs on Wordpress?

Many years ago, when the Wix blog just started, the only reasonable quick solution was wordpress. The old blog that wix had was a great fit for small blogs, but not for a professional blog that Wix needed for her millions of readers The new blog was built from the ground up to support professional bloggers and I am happy to say that during the last few months a migration process was on the way from wordpress to the wix blog. I guess that next week we will see wix main blog using it's home grown wix blogging system for it's millions of readers. To achieve that, the blog team needed to make many improvements to performance and SEO to meet the high standards of the marketing department in Wix. These improvements were done for the benefit of all Wix users - so this is great news to all During the migration process we also learned how to better move posts from wordpress to Wix without losing the SEO and traffic - I guess we will do something with this knowledge sometimes in the future A nice thing that also happened, is that the blog team built an amp version for posts. See example: https://www.wix.com/wixblog/content-writing/amp/post/2018-12-handling-rejection-professional-writing Some of the Wix blogs already moved. See examples: https://www.wix.com/blog/photography https://www.wix.com/blog/content-writing/ https://www.wix.com/wixanswers/main/blog https://www.wix.com/blog/business-analytics Once this process will be done, we can be sure that the Wix Blog will be the best blogging system for professional bloggers

Can I delete the new Wix blog and make it "forget" the imported blog?
