I just found this thing called Blogshares. It's supposed to track data about blogs and tell you their potential value - I thought it was for advertisers looking for places to put their ads, or bloggers trying to figure out if it would be worth it to host Google generated ads.

But it turns out it's "a simulated, fantasy stock market for weblogs where players invest fictional money to buy stocks and bonds in an artificial economy where attention is the commodity and weblogs are the companies."

I have no idea what that means.

But there's this whole page with data about this blog.

Nobody links to me. How sad. But why should they? I don't stay on topic, I don't post regularly, my posts aren't searchable or categorizable ... surely no good can come of this! But I have tricks up my sleeve. Watch this space carefully! Place your bets on me, folks, place your bets ...
