MyBlogLog confirmed they are re-branding the service, but didn’t reveal the actual brand name. Anyone have any good guesses as to what it might be?

Along with a new brand name, MyBlogLog users can expect the following:

  • A complete site redesign
  • A new “Widget 2.0″ is coming with some hover features.
  • Yahoo! is hard at work to remove the offensive photos so that MyBlogLog would be palatable to more conservative business blogs.

For the record, I don’t agree with Duncan Riley’s statement that this is “too little, too late” – I’m confident Eric and the crew have some cool stuff in the works. I’m particularly excited about the new widget that is in development. There are tons of potential widgets that could be built from MBL data — show the communities that I visit most often, place my most recent comments on other blogs in a widget, highlight the users who visit my blog the most, etc.

TechCrunch also covered the story.
