It has FINALLY arrived! Spring Break 2008. My post’s title does not refer to the wild MTV style Spring Break surfing, though – I’m much too old for that. My idea of Spring Break is relaxing and surfing the Internet (after this morning’s much needed massage).
As I was reading some other educators’ blogs today, I came across an interesting tidbit in Diane Cordell’s blog. She had found a “blog worth test” through a friend on Twitter and tested to see how much her blog would be worth on the market. Dane Carlson created an applet based on Technorati’s API of blog value. He describes it in this Business Opportunites Weblog post.
Of course, no blogger could read this post without testing the value of his/her blog. Diane’s blog is worth a respectable $35,001.48. Mine has less than 1/10 the value of hers which is no surprise since it is the definition of obscure (and perhaps even lonely). I guess I need to finish my Master’s in Library and Information Science and continue working as a media specialist in case I ever get a wild hair and want to go WATCH (not participate) in an MTV Spring Break bash – blogging is not going to pay for my gas to the beach. Sigh…
But, a fun way to start out Spring Break.
