In case you’ve not heard, the MyBlogLog.com network will be terminated in May of this year. Here’s what Yahoo said in letters to customers:
We will officially discontinue Yahoo! MyBlogLog effective May 24, 2011.
Although I did not receive a letter, the account dashboard displayed:
“Important Notice – MyBlogLog will no longer be in service from 24 May 2011.”
As TimeThief said on OneCoolSiteBloggingtips she “had already connected with on other (social networking sites.” When I first joined I liked the site and wrote 8 posts about how you could use it to increase blog traffic. It did work in the beginning then things got stale, with lots of spammy comments sent to all members of your community.
So what to do with those posts? My first thought was delete them since I’m trying to refocus my blog anyway. But first I looked at Analytics to see if there was any recent traffic (LOL). Not surprised the answer was None.
Then I thought, well maybe I can salvage the post content and work it around a newer more effective network. Nope.
So I ended up deleting them all. Post content centered on using the site and statistics on results (new friends, community members). Also some links to resource sites were out of date.
In this process I found outdated posts about BlogRush, an oldie that was discontinued in 2008. It was a service that was to bring a “rush of traffic’ to those who joined. So I deleted two more posts.
What to do with MyBlogLog account? I plan to delete my account (if I can get into it, now that Yahoo tied my Yahoo to MBL accounts).
What to do instead of MBL? Well Yahoo recommends Yahoo! Pulse. I’ll hold off on joining for awhile.
What do you plan to do with your MyBlogLog account and posts until the axe goes down in May. Any experience with Yahoo!Pulse?
