I have just discovered MyWebLog thanks to Techcrunch reporting that it had been acquired by Yahoo.

So I took a look. Its an AWESOME product and I have just spent the best part of a Saturday morning integrating it into my website - a bit of tidying up to do but it is as good as done .

What's so great about it? Well, it allows anyone with a weblog or a personal website like mine to build a proper community around the site - you could say a bit like MySpace for bloggers! If you look on one of my web pages you will find a new panel at the top left hand column of the page that shows a list of people plus their photos who have recently visited my site - they of course need to be members of MyBlogLog. If you click through on a photo you get to see their profile and a whole load more.

I have been wanting to build a feature like this into my site for the last 5 years or more but did not have the time nor could I afford to purchase some software that I could integrate into my site. MyBlogLog has provided me a solution for free and for a few hours of my time - the actual coding literally took a few minutes.

I am still exploring the system and have been intrigued to notice that over a few hours I keep seeing minor cosmetic improvements creeping in - which is amazing. But now that Yahoo have acquired them I expect this service to go from strength to strength. I have yet to have my first member sign up and I can't find any of my KM blogger colleagues using it yet. But I think that's just a matter of time!

I think this has the potential to set blogging alight!
