Blo.gs has been sold to an unnamed individual and will transfer ownership, including account information and user data, sometime on or around June 13.

Blo.gs is a directory of recently updated weblogs. It is "pinged" by virtually every public blog as they are updated. I wonder if this individual who purchased the site will subsequently flip Blo.gs to a search engine trying to build a blog search tool.

Excerpt (Added by WebProNews Editor) ....

blo.gs to be sold, user data to be transferred i am in the final stages of completing a sale of blo.gs to a new owner, and expect to hand over the site, along with the user data, sometime on or after june 13, 2005. so as spelled out in the blo.gs privacy policy, this is your opportunity to have your account deleted before this transfer happens. you can delete your account by going to http://blo.gs/quit.php, or by sending an email to delete@blo.gs.

i'm sorry i can't yet say who it is that will be acquiring blo.gs, but i can pass on the assurance that there will be no change in the privacy policy when they acquire the service and registered users will be given the opportunity to consent to any future change. they plan to continue providing the same features that exist now, and will be working on making blo.gs even better. the new owners will be in touch shortly after they've taken over the service next month.
