I love Mybloglog. I joined this site a week or so ago and I’ve been busy connecting with sites I’m familiar with who’s owners are already members, and finding new blogs as I go.
This is a social network site that lets bloggers connect with one another. For example when I signed up I added 7 of my blogs to the site, and my husbands blog as well. Almost immediately I had someone leave a message welcoming me to the site and I think expressing surprise at how many sites I run. I visited their site and checked out their blog and added them as a contact. I’ve been traveling through the Mybloglog site in that manner ever since.
Whenever someone visits my sites, or my communities- each blog I added to Mybloglog has it’s own community page – and leaves a message I visit them as well. If I like their sites I add them as a contact and perhaps join their community.
A running list of popular posts in your communities can be found in the right sidebar of your Mybloglog page.
They also offer site widgets that allow you to see which Mybloglog members have visited your site recently. That’s another way to connect with bloggers. I haven’t added the Mybloglog widget to this site yet but when I do it will be in my sidebar to the right.
You can also add a code to your site that will monitor your traffic. Then when you visit your Mybloglog page you can see the site stats for your blog. I really like their stat system. You can see which of your posts are most popular, how many visitors you’ve had to each of your posts, and what links they clicked while they were on your site. You can even see where your traffic came from. This is one of the best stat programs that I’ve found. I’m only using the free version.
You can get more stats if you pay a small monthly fee for each blog that you want stats for if you’d like, but I have so many blogs in the system it would cost too much. That’s my only complaint about Mybloglog. They should have a flat fee for those who have multiple sites. Then I might take them up on their full featured stat program.
Sign up for Mybloglog and feel free to visit my Mybloglog page. I’d be happy to meet you and perhaps sign you up as a new contact.
UPDATE: January 26th – I’ve been using Mybloglog for a few months now and I’m happy to report that I have over 100 contacts and I’ve joined 53 communities. I’m still as happy with Mybloglog as when I originally wrote this post. Oh and Mybloglog was purchased by Yahoo in early January, but Yahoo has no plans to make any changes to the site- which is a good thing.
I’m also happy to say that I when I look at my AWstats I can see that I get visitors each day on all of my sites from Mybloglog.
