Lee Ambrosius is in town for some ObjectARX training this week and he stopped by my office yesterday. Lee pointed a web site out to me which ranks blogs with fantasy stock prices based on a number of factors. It was really interesting and like a game. They initially give you $500 in fantasy money to buy shares in blogs and you increase your money by picking winners. Pretty interesting web game or diversion.
The site is http://blogshares.com

It was shocking to find people have used my blog in the game and traded it up in price and the fact that my blog was one of the higher rated and priced ones. Of course compared to the valuation given to Microsoft blogger Robert Scobles blog which is hovering around half a million, mine does not look all that big.
Chris Yanchars Between the Walls blog is now at a very respectable $12,963.47 , Lee Ambrosius’ Beyond the UI is $8,354.46, and Ryan Smalls' Autodesk Informer $9,702.68, and Beau Turners Will Render for Food is $4,575.67.
Well, I better get back to increasing the stock price of this blog and start posting more ;-).
