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.
