Yahoo says they want to kill myBlogLog.
This will be a pretty different post today, but I’ve decided to participate in this Bloggers unite event. I’ve never used MyBlogLog before, but… well… I want to, one day. Blog Catalog, (which is a sort of similar site to MyBlogLog,) has offered to take it over , and keep developing it, (apparently it hasn’t changed much for like 4 years, since Yahoo bought it in 2007.) Now if you remember Yahoo also decided they would like to kill Delicious, although they haven’t yet, I wrote a weekly links post of delicious alternatives, and linked to a couple articles, it’s right here. Unlike saying it would maybe kill delicious one day, Yahoo says on the MyBlogLog site that it will be shut down on May 24th That page is right here. Like I said, I’ve wanted to use MyBlogLog for a while, but um… it’s a Yahoo site, to use it, I actually would have to sign up for a Yahoo account, which I don’t have because well… we just don’t get along. So, maybe I’ll join and put the widget on here, just for kicks. Here are a couple more links:
- Yahoo To Shut Down MyBlogLog On May 24, from techcrunch.
- Yahoo shuts down MyBlogLog, a $10 mil purchase you never heard of, from download squad.
So, there ya go my disorganized thoughts on the situation.
