The Value of SharePoint Blogs

How much is a SharePoint blog worth to you? Based on some research by Tristan Louis on how much a blog is worth (based on linking, popularity, phases of the moon, whatever) Dane Carlson wrote a small applet that will calculate the value of your blog. Just input your blog's URL and it comes back with a value and a small snippet of HTML you can put on your site. Here's mine:

My blog is worth $45,727.74.
How much is your blog worth?

While it's completely silly and who knows what the calculation is based on, my blog showed up to be worth about $45k. Fitz came in at $44k so not sure if that's good or bad. Anyways just for kicks, I wasted 15 minutes of my life and here's the rundown on how much most of the SharePointHeads blogs are worth (in descending order of value, just so we can show up each other in our little circle of freakness).

Blog Value
Jan Tielen $72,825.66
Patrick Tisseghem $52,502.22
Bil Simser $45,727.74
Mike Fitzmaurice $44,598.66
Daniel McPherson $35,566.02
Andrew Connell $33,307.86
Angus Logan $32,743.32
Serge van den Oever $29,356.08
Mart Muller $27,662.46
Mads Nissen $27,662.46
Dustin Miller $24,275.22
Amanda Murphy $20,887.98
Bill English $12,984.42
Arno Nel $10,726.26
Mike Walsh $9,032.64
Bob Mixon $8,468.10

So next time one of us spouts off perls of wisdom just remember that you're getting high priced information for free (based on this incredibly scientific system, can you feel the sarcasm dripping from your browser yet?). BTW, Scoble's blog (which some say is the mother of all blogs) comes in around $2.2 million for comparison.

Yeah, it's shaping up to be a slow week.
