All Those Blogs Can't Really be Worth More than Sphere, Can They?
I couldn't resist. Surely Sphere is worth more than Nature Noted! I plugged Sphere's URL in, only to find out that Burns's blog is worth $1,129.08 more than Sphere! Even though Pat seems like a good guy and he linked to my blog early on, it was too much for my ego to bear. So I went through most of my links and bookmarked blogs just to prove that Sphere was more "valuable."
Jon Christensen's Uneasy Chair? $20,323.44! Baysense? $23,146.14! A relative upstart like the DC Birding Blog? $23,146.14!
All of them worth more than Sphere? Outrageous. What about John Massengale, an architect and planner who I happen to know personally? His blog is worth $33,872.40! And 10,000 Birds? Mike, who lives in the Bronx no less, is killing me -- $42,905.04!
This it truly humbling.
My opinion about the quality of these blogs compared to mine goes without saying, of course. But just in case Jon and Pat and Mike and the others let this bogus "valuation" go to their heads, I made a list -- and included Talking Points Memo. Now they can see what it feels like to be way behind.

John Massengale: $33,872.40
DC Birding Blog: $23,146.14
