News Hounds Traded on Interactive Stock Market

Reported by Marie Therese - June 16, 2005

Last year I stumbled across Blogshares, a site which describes itself as "a fantasy stock market for weblogs. Players get to invest a fictional $500, and blogs are valued by incoming links." News Hounds is listed and traded along with thousands of others.

We were added to the "exchange" on June 27, 2004, which is interesting because we didn't go online until July 1, 2004.

On October 24, 2004 our blog was valued at $60,911.28. Today we're valued at $109,542.96. Our price per share is $4205.41.

By way of comparison:

Instapundit (conservative) - valued at $2,068,974.72, price per share $5,690.10

Daily Kos (liberal) - valued at $1,598,327.37, price per share $364.88

Little Green Footballs (conservative) - valued at $900,102.41, price per share $19,367.37

Talking Points memo (liberal) - valued at $1,583,523.79, price per share $71,620.22

Blogs for Bush (conservative) - valued at $459,705.16, price per share $12,822.56

Wonkette (liberal) - valued at $1,184,053.45, price per share $36,075.84

This all sounds pretty impressive to me but I haven't the foggiest idea how this whole "stock market" thing works. I must admit, though, it's kind of exciting to see our "value" increase.
