Yahoo To Shut Down MyBlogLog On May 24

Yahoo will soon kill off MyBlogLog, the service it acquired from the eponymous company behind it back in early 2007.

Here’s the message that was just emailed to all users (myself included):

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, please visit the Yahoo! MyBlogLog help pages.

We thank you for being a customer on Yahoo! MyBlogLog.


The Yahoo! My BlogLog Team

MyBlogLog basically enabled you to track who was visiting your website or blog.

Not that the shutdown is much of a surprise. In a now-famous leaked internal slide, Yahoo already acknowledged that it would be ‘sunsetting’ the service (and others) at some point.
