Need Money Blog: The End Of MyBlogLog

Yahoo informed users by email this morning, of its blog tracking service, MyBlogLog, that the end was coming in the next few months:

Dear MyBlogLog Customer,

You have been identified as a customer of Yahoo! MyBlogLog. We will officially discontinue Yahoo! MyBlogLog effective May 24, 2011. Your agreement with Yahoo!, to the extent that it applies to the Yahoo! MyBlogLog, will terminate on May 24, 2011.

After May 24, 2011 your credit card will no longer be charged for premium services on MyBlogLog. We will refund you the unused portion of your subscription, if any. The refund will appear as a credit via the billing method we have on file for you. To make sure that your billing information is correct and up to date, visit

MBL was an innovative service when it started some years ago as that it let bloggers create a profile, include a link to their blog and then connect with other bloggers. For many new bloggers, MyBlogLog helped them build traffic and readers for their fledgling blogs.

After the Yahoo buyout, it was apparent that Yahoo had few new ideas as to what to do with MBL. The content and management of the site became less frequent and features like Blogger of the Day fell by the wayside.

In recent years after the Yahoo buyout, MyBlogLog had more bloggers setting up quickie websites and asking other members to come visit their advertisers. However, there were still thousands of users and for many sites, mine included, MBL was a great way to meet others online and share your passions.

At some point in May, the little MyBlogLog box on the lower right will go dark. It's a shame, but it happens as the Internet continues evolving.

For now, I might drop by and make a few more friend requests before it all goes away forever.

Bye bye MyBlogLog.


Need Money Scam: Internet Income Wealth Kit

Maybe you have seen the ads for Melissa Johnson who claims for only an initial cost of $2.97, she was able to get the Internet Income Wealth Kit. Afterwards, Johnson claims she was able to make $3000-4000.00 a month online.

I saw the ad on a popular entertainment site about Johnson. The link was for a fake news site called IConsumer News Report. The only story they carried was about Johnson and had multiple links for the Internet Income Wealth Kit.

Again, Johnson claimed it was only $2.97 to get started. However, on the signup page, the terms were far less generous.

It's 2.97 for a trial period:

When you submit your order, you agree to pay the shipping and handling fee of $2.97 for instant access during the viewing period

After a short three days, the real price kicks in:

After your 3-day viewing period, you will be charged a ONE TIME fee of $99.95 for the full product cost.

But wait! Then more costs come every month:

Thereafter, we will charge you a $69.95 monthly website hosting and maintenance fee until you cancel our service

They even claim that they have a "streamlined version" but it costs the same:

If the product cost is declined during processing, we will provide a streamlined version of the product with fewer products available for a ONE TIME fee of $99.95.

How to cancel the Internet Income Wealth Kit:

Need Money Blog: Ten Annoying Posters On Online Forums

You read forums right? You know, something you follow, a hobby, a news site, or lifestyle site? Lot's of people read and contribute to online forums, some quite seriously.

Forums are very popular because they allow like minded people the chance to discuss and share things online. Whole communities develop, friendships (and enemies) are made online and conversations lead to ideas spreading. It's a neat and timeless concept.

However, there are many things people do online when contributing to forums which is incredibly obnoxious. Most times, such actions can be chalked up to ignorance or failure to read the FAQ for a forum. Other times, it's because the poster is just plain annoying.

Here's a Top Ten List of Annoying Things To Do On Forums

1) The SCREAMER.   THAT MEANS WRITING EVERY WORD IN CAPS. It's not 1996 anymore, everyone knows that all caps means shouting. If you are old or hard of eyesight and can't read your screen, get some glasses, a bigger monitor or turn the computer off and find another pass time.

2) The CAPS ADDICT. They CAPITALIZE every OTHER word for EMPHASIS. An occasional capped word is one thing, but so often hurts normal people's eyes. People who write like this have some emotional need to emphasize every point they make for attention. Annoying.

3) The Mystery Linker. This is a an extremely annoying habit of some posters. They start a thread with a subject like "This video will change everything!" and then provide the link and so on. No explaination or synopsis of the link. C'mon, give some clue as to what you are posting.

4) The Inside Abbreviator. This is directed at posters who use numerous abbreviations and terms that are closed to their line of work but that anyone outside of their world and also on the forum will not understand.

For instance, "All of us GSA22 know you have to have an FOB form or the super upstairs will deep six it!" What the...? Annoying.

5) The Me Too Poster. Someone who posts a terse, unspectacular response to a long post without trimming the original post. For intance..




Yeah, I agree.


6) The Spam Dropper.A thread will be in discussion and someone drops in, makes an unrelated remark and then puts out a link. The posts look like this:

What a great comment!
Say, have you ever wanted to own your own business? Check out this housewife making $50000 online! at http://www.blskjsd_dj.bza/!

7) The Oblivious. The poster who starts thread after thread without checking to see if there are duplicate threads already going. It's almost like they only know how to start a thread and not how to respond to one.

8) The Lyricist. A famous musician or singer passes away and the Lyricist has to post, in stanza format, all the lines to their favorite song. Why not just point out, "Hey, I really liked that song You Got Gnarly Teeth" and then provide a link with synposis to a video of a performance. It's almost like the Lyricist wants to take credit for the song.

9) The Big Giffer. The person who responds to a post with a jpeg or gif which is ginormous and takes five minutes to page load. Cut it out.

10) The Mystery Threader. This person starts a post with a subject line which has no information and requires the other forum members to click and read their thread. Please give complete information in the thread title. For instance:

Bank of Arizona gives out personal information to third party companies


Guess what my bank did?

I love forums and contribute to several. Maybe somehow, I can spread the word and get more people to be less annoying. Maybe I can get more FAQ to contain a list like this. Bah, why bother. Nobody, I mean NOBODY, will change ANYTHING about their FORUM POSTINGS. Say, have you checked out this link yet? It's great!
