Blog Valuation: How Much Are You Worth?

The Kirk Report had a link to a website the other day. The site, Leapfish, provides a quick estimate of the value a domain name might have if sold. For instance, You Tube comes in at over 9 million.

So I thought it might be interesting (read pretty funny) to see what some of the bloggers I read are worth.

Coming at number one (of course) is the man, the myth, the legend in his own mind Trader X with an estimated value of $3,542.00.

Second place goes to Trader Mike who clocks $240.00. I detect a bit of west coast bias here seeing how Mike comes out of Stanford.

Showing in third is Howard Lindzon who comes in at $125.00. Don't know if that is CDN or USD. If we give HL credit (or blame) for Wallstrip he pulls ahead of Mike with an additional $427.00 added.

In fourth is all around good guy Bill Rempel with $21.00. It has been confirmed that Bill's valuation is actually understated by a factor of 100 as a result of a vast right AND left wing value investor conspiracy due to his many technical analysis posts.

Bringing up the rear is the lovable miscreant Tapeworm at Tale of The Tape who is worth an astonishing $19.00, and that is USD. Rumor has it that Mr. Worm is a former Jerry's kid and that next year's telethon will be featuring him in an attempt to get that valuation up.

An honorable mention goes to the Trading Goddess who is a new blogger. While her valuation appears to be quite low at $12.00, one look at her blog (and her picture) convinces this reader that this is a classic market mis-pricing.

Please note: Due to observed statistical anomalies Ugly at Ugly Chart was disqualified. While his valuation was listed at $49,532.00 the judges deemed such a figure to be a result of untoward manipulation. When asked for their rationale the judges issued this terse statement: "Nothing that Ugly could be worth so much."

Steven,

Thank you for your kind words and the linky. :)

$12 won't even pay for a lunch at RUTH! I have 30 more dot coms....want to appraise them for me? Maybe I will be able to get a complete dinner yet and beat out Trader-X! And we all know he only rated that high cause he had the letter X in it. HA!

Hey Steven, take a look at your heading... I think you are missing a word.

According to LeapFish, FatPitchFinancials.com is worth a whopping $4,661.00. I guess it goes to show you that even amongst blogs, long-term value investing produces superior returns. ;-)

Hmm... Maybe I can turn in my domain for a share of baby Berkshire.

So Steven, are you going long on the Trading Goddess based on this analysis?

Steven said...

X: Prize money was going to equal Tapeworm's trading profits today. Looks like todays results are in, and as usual it is negative Z. Too bad, so sad. LOL

T'Goddess: Thanks for catching that for me will adujst.

Nodoodahs: T'Goddess is def. a blog you would want to go long on...short side won't get you very far with her...or so she says. LOL

Mine's $4,400. I suspect most of that is longevity, though. (It's also where the pagerank comes from.)

Steven said...

Hey Guys, Candice says since her blog is now worth a cool 4k she is buying drinks on Bourbon Street over the holidays.

Steven said...

George: LOL

candice said...

Only place I drink on Bourbon Street is the gay bars.
