Playing the Blog Stock Market

Oh, bizarre. Has anyone else stumbled across this website called Blogshares before? I just discovered it on my own. Describing itself as The Fantasy Blog Stock Market you can see how well your blog does on the open market. Their description reads, "BlogShares is a fantasy stock market for weblogs. Players get to invest a fictional $500, and blogs are valued by incoming links". I found my own site on there quite be accident. It's kind of intense. My pseudo-stock has really risen over the last few months. So if you're playing, mine is a horse to back, people! My valuation, after all, is $12,712.70.

Yeah, I found blogshares based on a google news alert. My blog was at that point in time the NUMBER ONE UNDERVALUED blog based on a price to earnings ratio. Uh-huh. Might still be, actually, but I've never been back out to check. Kinda a hoot, though.

I hate to say this, Fuse, but it kind of works like the stock market (and economics, in general!) In other words, I don't understand it at all. My stock even crashed and then rebounded Why? I guess that's the game in it :)

Ah well. That explains a lot. Y'know, you can pretty much take everything I understand about stock markets and it would be just the tiniest spect of dirt in the eye of a flea. Still, it's fun to watch.

Thanks for pointing this out. It was fun to look up all the kids lit stocks, even though I didn't quite understand how they were valued. Very fun though.

Yawn. I've been a millionaire for so long on Blogshares that I now qualify for Bush's tax breaks.

I wish.

I certainly will have much to discuss with the board of governors at the annual meeting.

I expect a full and complete line-item budget (including depreciation of assets) and how this blog can turn its yield around for investors like myself. Earnings must go up in the first quarter of the next fiscal year or we may be looking at some ugly Sarbanes-Oxley investigations.

You know I have only you, the stockholders, at heart. Everything I do is for the good of the company! And if my accounting goes a little awry here or there.... well now you wouldn't want to bale out too soon, would you? Have some faith in Fuse #8. Just truuuust me... heh heh heh...

Hi everyone,
Your blog is quite nice and informative.
We hope our information will be quite useful for your users also.
As we can see Dollar is becoming weaker day by day as compared to Indian Rupees, which is affecting IT Sector Still IT sector got lot of potential as is due to zoom up once again.

Moreover Recently we have witnessed that Indian stock market has touched new heights surprisingly IT sector was not part of it.

Now NIFTY is already in overbought zone. We can expect NIFTY and SENSEX to fall bit that is correction is due.

Best strategy now- For investors wait for minor correction and buy IT stocks at dips.

For traders – You can mint money in bearish and bullish market both .
