How Much Is Your Blog Worth?

Wednesday, March 29th, 2006

Bob over at WorldCupBlog passed this on to me today – it’s a link that supposedly measures the dollar amount that your blog is worth.  However, I’m reminded of what my father used to warn me about such things – “It doesn’t matter what the book says – your baseball cards are only worth as much as someone is willing to pay of them.”  True, true.  So, How Much Is Your Blog Worth?

Need an Africa Fix?

Thursday, March 23rd, 2006

My old roommate Allison passed along her cousin Ben’s blog this week.  He’s roaming around Africa for about a year and has been updating a few times a week.  My favorite are his profiles of other people.  I think it’s a great way for a writer to bring a little bit of where he or she is travelling back home to those reading the blog.

Ben was working for the NYT, the same newspaper that is sponsoring the Win a Trip with Nick Kristof contest. I strongly encourage any university student with a passion for travel – or even the slightest itty bitty interest in travel – to apply.
