Yahoo gobbles up MyBlogLog for over 10 million.
This is not good news for those of us who have readily enjoyed the service over the last 8 months because the incubation period of this project has not had long enough to develop unlike del.icio.us or Flickr. Even though MyBlogLog has been a darling of bloggers everywhere (including myself), I think this might be the jumping the shark moment.
Expect lots of attempts at user spam and an end to innocence. Don’t be surprised if I remove the widgets here soon as the amount of spam has already been increasing on a daily basis.
Congrats to the MyBlogLog team, but I hope the integration goes well (unlike some other Yahoo services).
