I have been following my progress on BlogShares with some interest. However, my interest had been somewhat muted given that my market value peaked at $50 and has been rapidly falling towards zero. Inexplicably, my weblog reached its IPO point today, and so the interest mounts. I had thought that a weblog’s valuation was the sum total of the value of its incoming links. Barring a fluke link on a large weblog, it seemed as though my weblog was destined to remain in the doldrums. However, crazedmonkey.com is now public and I rate it a Strong Buy.
My posts have been infrequent as of late. Everyone seems to be “warblogging” and I’ve given up adding to the noise. I have been somewhat distressed at the “fiercely independent thought” on some of the more “conservative” weblogs I have been forcing myself to read. I am tempted to write a few words, but that would just be feeding the trolls. We’ll see.
