Insanely Narcissistic Time Killer of the Day

Blogshares is a fantasy stock market for weblogs. Players get to invest a fictional $500, and blogs are valued by incoming links. My blog is currently valued at $3,302.29, although the notion that someone would pay that amount of money for it is probably where the "fantasy' comes in.

But I had to start looking at what other blogs are valued at, because I'm just that kind of girl:

Eschaton (Atrios) $1,050,445.52
Alicublog $36,624.71
Wolcott $141,399.43
Instapundit $1,878,525.63
Roger Ailes $108,852.69
Rude Pundit $116,459.6
feministe $75,459.42

I shouldn't care, but being hyper-competitive despite my better instincts, I do. I take much pride in the fact that fat capitalists have valued my stock at $61.19 per share, up from $1.98 on January 3.

Okay, maybe not fat capitalists. Maybe nerds with pocket protectors and way too much time on their hands. But still.
