Quite often I stumble with this question of what is it worth, this blogging?. I wonder if the time spent is worthwhile and is it headed anywhere.
There have been a number of times where this thought has further evolved to think on the value this blog has mustered on the internet. There have been a few instances where I have wondered how much money can this blog earn, if I were to sell it right this moment. The reason for me to think in these lines were some deals that were struck on blogs that were sold for millions of dollars.
These are just thoughts and sure don’t impact the focus or the motive of me writing a blog. Now, since the thought is not much harmful, I wanted to understand better. My search through the internet were fruitful and I came across this tool that was developed by Dane Carlson of the Business Opportunities Weblog. This tool was inspired by the Tristan Louis research on the AOL and Weblogs Inc deal.
Based in the inspiration and using the Technorati API(Application Program Interface) Dane Carlson has developed this tool which, by using the links in Technorati provides us with a value of our blog.
You can visit this link at Business opportunities weblog and type in your URL at the box provided. Once you submit the URL you will be provided with the value of your blog. This widget looks like the one below and yes my blog is worth $3,387.24. Though the value is this I still would not sell the blog off.
