In an email sent out to all MyBlogLog users today, the service will be shutting down on May 24. This semi-popular blogging social network is dying off fast after Yahoo bought the service back in 2007 for $10 million.
This email was just sent out to everyone using the service, including me:
Dear MyBlogLog Customer,

MyBlogLog was a service run by Yahoo to help administrators track who was visiting their blog.
Not that this is a surprise or anything. There have been some letters leaked internally throughout Yahoo stating that some services will be killed off this year.
