How much is your blog worth?

Dane Carlson has a fun little application at his Business Opportunities Weblog which computes and displays your blog’s worth based on the link-to-dollar ratio used by AOL-Weblogs Inc.

Here is my blog’s “worth” compared to some other blogs I visit:

RayFowler.org
Monday Morning Insight
SmartChristian.com
Albert Mohler’s Blog
The Evangelical Outpost
Between Two Worlds
Challies Dot Com
Hugh Hewitt
Instapundit
Lifehacker
$      12,419.88
$    125,327.88
$    155,248.50
$    479,859.00
$    602,928.72
$    668,415.36
$    720,917.58
$1,555,872.24
$3,063,758.58
$6,996,344.22

I am truly a small fish in a very big ocean.

Of course, there are more important ways of measuring a blog’s worth than link-to-dollar ratios. Here are just a few:

  • God being glorified
  • friendships strengthened
  • relationships formed
  • lives touched
  • truth communicated
  • encouragement given
  • laughter spread
  • information shared

Can you add some others?

    Oh, that’s really hilarious! My blog is worth just a few dollars over $5,000. Where can I sell it? I could use the money! Ha! Ha! I’d miss my blog, but hey, it’s always free to open a new one!

    Seriously, I’m so thankful for the people I’ve met through blogging. I’ve been encouraged, challenged, comforted and strengthened through these relationships. It’s kind of like that credit card ad:
    My blog: $5,000
    Your blog: $12,000
    Their blog: $7,000,000
    The connection we share in the body of Christ through blogging: Priceless

    Great comment! I love the credit card analogy. Priceless!
