Yes, in the Thursday edition, which actually hits the street today
(some streets anyway).
And you (and your blog) play something of a starring role, at least
in Hank’s portion.

On another somewhat related topic: I was websurfing last night and
came across a little box thingy based on the recent spate of
discussion on the value of blogs in light of some dude (Tristan
Louis) selling his, or offering his for sale, or whatever it was he did.

It’s a little routine that counts the number of links to your blog
and calculates a price based on the per link formula that
blogsalesman used. I’m attaching the results in jpeg form.

The page is here:

As you will see, it shows that my blog is worthless, a piece of crap
waste of time that no one reads, much like the vast majority of the
ever increasing number of blogs that are rapidly clogging the
blogosphere… But wait, maybe there’s a flaw in the formula. It
judges only on linkage. What if I could get some bloggers to link to
my site? Perhaps then it would be deemed worthwhile. If only I knew
some bloggers…

p.s. I’m also using this e-mail as an experiment in posting via e-
mail. I’m curious to see how it works and if the jpegs are included

  1. Hmmm…you actually managed to do a post via e-mail. I’ve never been able to get that to work for me.

    Yeah, I did that blog value tool myself and mine was worth just less than $3000, if memory serves me correct. Somewhere back in my archives there’s a post where I mention my blog value and the value of a few of the other blogs I frequent. Don’t really know what to make of all that, though.

    I’m surprised at how quickly it comes up with a value. You’d think it would take at least a few seconds to find the blog and analyze all the links?
