The Perfect Plan

It looks like the ashram is worth all of $1693.62.

To be honest, I was pretty impressed with this figure at first. I had invested as much as $0 to get this blog up and running (thank you Blogger!). As far as quantifying my efforts goes, even that isn't really much. I never blog at the cost of more important real-world activities. It's a strictly if and when I have time to kill deal.

It seemed like a business game in which I had just made an ROI of infinity. So far so good.

But then, I tried looking up the values of some of the other blogs I visit.

e.g. Scott Adam's blog is worth a freaking $1,590,873.72

Well, he's a celebrity. But every Tom, Dick and Harry's blog is worth at least five figures left of the decimal point. WTF?

My blog is at the BOTTOM. I know it must be some stupid algorithm that looks up the inbound traffic, no. of links to the blog, no. of comments and that sort of stuff. Because I certainly am an EXpert on probability and statistics but definitely not on advertising, my blog has had its ass kicked.

This is unbelievable. THIS SUCKS.

I sometimes use Loadrunner at work. But now I will actually put it to work. I will generate millions of hits to my blog. I will turn IP spoofing on in order to fool that stupid algorithm. I will create thousands of links and comments. And then I will sit back and watch my blog's portfolio swell into millions, nay billions. I will then sell my blog for a few billion and set up a company which lets other bloggers sell theirs for billions (my commission will be 39.8% only). My interviews will be published in Time and Newsweek. I will be awarded a Nobel in Economics. I will buy the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. On second thought, I will buy the Himalayas. My likeness will grace Madame Tussaud's.

All of a sudden, the world seems a better place. Now all that I need to do is to get past the firewall at office. It will be an interesting day at work.

As far as Im aware, and Im no freakin expert, but the value of blogs thingy is total crap.
I started mine a very short time ago and mines apparantly worth $3,387.24, which is fine of sparsness was valuable.
Even the value of the dotcoms, in reality, was total crap but look at all those multi-millionaires it made. Like the oh-look-i'm-soooo-rich-and-arrogant-you-poor-piece-of-shit Mark Cuban for example. I hope to join him someday :)
My blog is worth only $1,129.08.
And I slept through the 3 day training session on Loadrunner.
You have put it in a lighter vein but I hope blogging really takes off in a big way.
|Ser Feenix| : I hope that, at least now, you realise the potential of the value addition effected by the training sessions of a global top 10 company.

|Hiren| : Me too. My Nobel and my acquisition plans for the Himalayas depend on it.
is there a chance you can reduce the commission of 39.8% for selling my blog??
if you suck up to me, maybe i will :P
