Yahoo is Shutting Down MyBlogLog

>Yahoo sent out an email informing MyBlogLog customers that the service will be discontinued on May 24, 2011.

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.

Unfortunately this was predictable. There was a time when bloggers were very active on MyBlogLog and everyday a new person would join my community. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a new face show up on the MyBlogLog widget that I still have on the bottom of my blog templates. The feature that I am going to miss the most is the statistics. Event hough I am a bit Statcounter fan and user I still find that MyBlogLog has better way of showing click statistics. Though it does not seem to pick up all the clicks especially clicks on ads but showing the title of a link instead of the url makes all the difference for me as a user.

RIP MyBlogLog you did well.
