The ActiveRain Stuff You Won't Find Anywhere Else on the Web

Yahoo! MyBlogLog to be Discontinued

Yahoo! MyBlogLog to be Discontinued
(Just to clarify the title, I'm not saying Yahoo that MyBlogLog is going away either...)

They'll come and they'll go. Some will stay, others just won't stand the test of time.  The announcement that MyBlogLog will be discontinued came as a surprise to me this morning.  For those not familiar with MyBlogLog, it's a social network for the blogger community that is based in part on interactions facilitated by a popular web widget that some members install on their blogs. Bloggers sign up for free accounts on MyBlogLog and can initiate a blog community for one or more blogs they author.

Today MyBloglog sent an email to paying and non-paying members:

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

If you have questions about these changes, visit MyBlogLog help pages.

While it's disappointing to see any site or product on the web "fail"
the thing I'll miss most will be seeing some of your smiling faces on my ActiveRain sidebar.  I really enjoy looking at the MyBlogLog widget to see who's been here.  The best part is that I can tell you were here even if you didn't leave a comment.  Looks like I'm going to have to find a replacement widget or tool so I can still keep track of your smiling faces.

If you're using MyBlogLog, looks like you will too.
