MyBlogLog Straining Under the Load?
You may have noticed that I have again removed the MyBlogLog widget.
Over the weekend, I noticed – as did others – that MP was taking far too long to load. After a quick analysis using the nifty OctaGate SiteTimer, I managed to isolate the offending item. The MyBlogLog widget.
Here’s a snapshot showing the widget taking almost six seconds to load.
I email the MyBlogLog team to see if a server had gone down again, but have not heard back as of yet. I’m not the only one that appears to be affected, TechCrunch was having the same issue and Michael Arrington has removed the MBL widget too.
I really like having the widget on the site – especially for the avatars – but I can’t keep removing and uploading the widget each week. Guys, you need to tap into those millions that Yahoo has and get this issue fixed, otherwise that precious momentum you have built will be worth zilch!
