When I joined MyBlogLog back in August, I was interested in real time statistics rather than community. I thought that the widgets were just a gimmick.

But recently, LinkedIn helped me reconnect with an old colleague and pick up some product knowledge for work. And Fred Wilson posted on the growth of MyBlogLog.

I never really bought into the social networking phenomenon. But I never really gave it a chance either. So I have added the MyBlogLog Recent Readers widget, and we’ll see how things go from here.
