It seems like all the blogs I read have the cute little widget from MyBlogLog in their sidebar. Everywhere I go I’m seeing the tiny pictures of all the latest readers of their blogs. To be honest, I tend to ignore stuff like this, at least initially, because I only have time lately to soak up as much content as I can and then move on.
Today, though, I finally read a post on ProBlogger about the recent problems with MyBlogLog. Apparently, there has been a huge problem with spam on this network in recent days and that has caused an uproar amongst it’s users. If you’re curious, here’s a response to the incident on MyBlogLog’s blog.
A quick note of explanation is in order for those of you (like me) who haven’t been paying attention to all of this. MyBlogLog is another social networking service that allows you to build a community page for your blog and connect with other members. It is geared towards bloggers in particular (hence the name) rather than just the general population.
As for myself, I find the whole idea of MyBlogLog to be somewhat interesting, but I’ll wait a little bit before I go joining another social networking site. I’ll at least have to wait until the dust settles on this latest flap. When I do join up, you’ll be the first to know.
