MyBlogLog is a social community of bloggers via which bloggers can communicate, view profiles etc of people that visit your blog. It's a two-tiered system, with bloggers talking amongst each other and the majority of the readers looking on from the fringes. MyBlogLog empower authors and readers to operate at the same level, thus everyone who reads a web site or blog can learn about and engage with one another.

Readers can become friends with other people who read your favorite blogs. See what else they're reading. Check out their MySpace and Friendster profiles and view their Flickr photostreams. Authors can learn more about their readers individually and as a group. What do they like and what are they ignoring? What are they reading elsewhere on the Web?

MyBlogLog enables you to take advantage of your existing presence on the Web and ties it into communities of like-minded readers and authors to add context to the conversations in which you take part.

MyBlogLog Widget for WordPress: The MyBlogLog widget plugin is now available for WordPress blogs, which once installed, help you to know who reads your blog. The widget will display both public photo’s (only MyBlogLog Community members) and a private reporting page of what your readers read and clicked.

Installation:
