Yahoo! is shutting down MyBlogLog

Yahoo! has yet again announced the shutting down of one of their services — this time around, it’s MyBlogLog. Yahoo! sent emails to all those who were using MyBlogLog last night.

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 https://billing.yahoo.com.

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

Been using MyBlogLog for years now, even before Yahoo! bought it for $10 million in early 2007. We’ve had over 2,000 members on MyBlogLog so I’m not sure what will happen after May 24 when the service is totally shut down.

    It’s the second time they sent that. The first time was a year or two ago? I ended up ignoring their latest email announcement thinking “someone’s messing with them again”.

    Wait-and-see mode, if their email announcement is for real.

    Tama, everytime I log out from my Yahoo! Mail (don’t laugh but it’s the longest email service that I’ve been using though Gmail is undeniably clever – so I have both), I love the news updates which Google doesn’t have. Kahit pa sabihin natin na hindi ganun ka swift and smooth ang mga products nila, may share parin talaga of fanatics sila dito sa Asia.

    While it may not affect as much people, yung mga Bloggers like Yugatech who have lots of following sa service na to would be a bit bothered. First Flickr, then Delicious, then MyBlogLog, baka sa susunod Yahoo! Mail na, wala kasing matatag na management organization ang Yahoo! Pero love ko parin sila kahit papaano ;-)

    That’s real sad. Sayang naman, wala ng automatic links from Yahoo. Sana sinabay na lang nila sa pagshutdown ng Siteexplorer sa 2012 yung MyBlogLog.

    Oh well, nasa process pa lang ako on how to put myBlogLog in my own page, but, here we go, another site shut down.

    It reminds me few years ago when Microsoft offered Yahoo $44.6 billion in which Yahoo dumbly turned down.

    Magsasara ang Yahoo! groups, mga matatandang bobo lang gumagamit nun, haha. Facebook groups is light years better.

    I hope na hindi naman sana mag sara ang yahoo group. Probably the reason they will shutdown their mybloglog is to reduce on cost kasi ok parin naman ang mybloglog kahit free service. Better to place facebook plug-in instead.

    The only thing I like about Yahoo is their front page news.

    Now I wonder how many years (or months) should we be counting before the good old Yahoo! Groups will be gone.

  20. Avatar for dan dan says:

    omg first was the 360 thing and this. Their yahoo groups are spammed to max as well too. I hope they could bounce back. We all loved yahoo years back :)

    Nge kakasign in ko lang kahapon pero wala pa namang message sakin. In any case, mukhang talagang may lugi rin kahit kasinglaki ng Yahoo ang isang website. Bakit kaya?

  24. Avatar for elmerlovesoreo elmerlovesoreo says:

    Wenks… kakalagay ko lang nung plug-in ng mybloglog sa blog ko last week hehehe. Di pala sikat yung service na yun. Kala ko madami makukuhang viewers dun :(
