Yahoo's MyBlogLog to be discontinued from May 24th 2011

I just received a mail from Yahoo stating that they will be discontinuing their MyBlogLog with effect from May 24th 2011. MyBlogLog was a yahoo service which provides blogging-enthusiasts a forum to connect with their readers and the wider blogging community. Yahoo acquired MyBlogLog from eponymous in January ’07 for $10M.  This is another RIP after Y!Buzz and Delicious :(

Yahoo! mybloglog Rest In Peace

Here's the mail Yahoo sent me(to all users) :

It seems that Yahoo's sunset is coming close. I found a nice post on 37signals.com check it out: What happens after Yahoo acquires you.

  1. Look at the email carefully again and see where the link leads you to. The email you received is a scam.

  2. Yahoo is shutting it down because Yahoo is not in a condition to run any other project. And mybloglog was on the other hand not a big success for them. I can see TV ads for Y! messenger this days. That is because with introduction of so many platforms Y! is finding a tough competition. If we move out of India Skype and Windows Live is the widely used messengers.

    I don't know how long will Yahoo sustain with declining graph of performance. Wish them a luck and hope they don't shut down Y! Mail.. :)
