After Yahoo's acquisition of MyBlogLog I hurried to the site and signed up.
And I must say I'm impressed, and therefore I've already bought a month's worth of membership ($3) and if I continue to like it I'll sure pay for a year ($25).
Besides being a service where like-minded bloggers can connect to and talk with each other, MyBlogLog also offers statistics (updated on an hourly basis!!) and some widgets for my blog.
I've added some of the widgets to this blog — see them here.
The best thing (besides the quickly updated statistics) is, that instead of creating a new blog at MyBloglog.com, I just type the address of my blog, and MyBlogLog recognized it as a WordPress powered blog.
Sweet and painless.
