If you signed up for MyBlogLog, then you also know that anytime you visit someones blog that is also signed up on MyBlogLog, your picture will show up under the recent readers every single time you visit their blog.
Now, I didn't really care for this option. Sometimes, I just wanted to pop in and see what new post someone wrote or maybe check back to see what other comments were made on a post that I commented on, and I don't want my face to show up every time I go to that blog!!
So I was getting irritated at this, because it was kind of like sneaking in and getting caught. I didn't like it. So I was trying to delete my account with them, when I came across this nifty little feature! You can basically "hide" and your picture won't show up anymore when you go to their blogs! HA HA HA!!!
How do you fix it? Sign on to your MyBlogLog account, then click on edit profile at the top of the screen, now scroll all the way down to the bottom of the screen and the last question is "Opt-out of data collection". Change this to yes. Click update my profile and you are all set! I did have to do this twice before it finally worked.
Go test it out on someone that has a MyBlogLog on their site and if your picture shows up, go back and do it again. Then go to someone else's blog to that has it and see if you show up!
So now I can browse all your blogs and not be "seen" if you have this on your blog. Neener neener neener!!!
