MyBlogLog: Social Networking for Bloggers

MyBlogLog is a social networking site made for bloggers. I joined just this month after finding about it from Cesar. One thing I noticed about this site is that it has no ads. Their business model is something like that of Flickr where you need to upgrade your free account for a cost (25 USD per year) so that you could maximize the built-in statistical tools. The statistical tools will tell you where your readers came from (links), what they have read in your blog and your outgoing links. If you have a free account, you will only see the last 10 of it.

MyBlogLog announced recently that they will be joining Yahoo and will be moving to San Francisco. Now, I wonder if there will be a change to the site’s color scheme and if they will be publishing ads for users who have free accounts.

Another interesting thing about MyBlogLog is their Help page where they have compiled FAQ’s. If you have browsed through it, you’ll see there the question “What is the meaning of life”. Their answer is:

What we’ve come up with can be reduced to two fundamental concepts. One, people are not wearing enough hats. Two, Matter is energy. In the universe, there are many energy fields, which we cannot normally perceive. Some energies have a spiritual source, which act upon a person’s soul. However, this soul does not exist automatically, as orthodox Christianity teaches, but has to be brought into existence by a process of guided self-observation. However, this is rarely achieved due to mankind’s unique ability to be distracted from spiritual matters by everyday trivia.
