Oh I would that it were so....

My blog is worth $10,726.26.
How much is your blog worth?

If only... but it's a fun little gizmo anyway, inspired by Tristan Louis's research into AOL's acquisition of Weblogs inc, the two year old weblog network founded by Jason Calacanis and Brian Alvey, for a sum that is rumoured to be anywhere between $25 million and $40 million. In this process, Time Warner provided some ideas as to the valuation of blogs by traditional media.

Nice picture Danielle!...but you know you shouldn't show yourself like that to Gavin!....

Gavin...;-)...thanks for the map!...sorted it in the end...I did put a couple of quotes in my blog header that learning a new language was like a new life etc....well I'm still learning!

P.S. my blogs worth a fortune on aesthetic value alone...of course if you caluculated the value of the content you get a much lower figure!!!!!

Behave yourself Span, you'll scare my public!

This is how it should be done:
Dear Valued Visitor,

Your interest in my blog is much appreciated. However regularly viewing more than a dozen pages per session without leaving a comment can be a bit creepy.

Have a nice day,


Anyway you cheeky bugger Span - it's not me having diffculty getting my meaning across - you don't listen! I could always stop helping you and leave you to your own maegre resources...

Don't say it's confusing Ian, Gavin will be in to stick the boot in...stil,he's right about at least 2 things...firstly, I don't listen (nor does he but we can't exepct him to notice!) and secondly I'm a bit blunt with comments: I don't see the need for dressing things uptoo much.

and you mean maestro Gavin?...or can't you spell the famous Commissaire's name (a character by Georges Simenon?)...hehehe

It's a neat idea, but Technorati can only calculate using those blogs in its system... and is only counting blogs updated within the last 6 months, and is no longer reading many of those.

Acient joke time: someone shot a hole in Brigitte Bardot's bathroom window. Inspector Maigret is looking into it!"
