Douglas A. McIntyre of 24/7 Wall St., a blog about stocks and other Wall Streets preoccupations, wrote an interesting post titled the Twenty Five Most Valuable Blogs.
The post attempts to attach value to the listed blogs by guessing their traffic and ad sales. From private conversations with other bloggers and Neatorama's internal traffic statistics, he's underestimating many of the blogs' traffic. But he's making it up in the valuations - they are stratospheric! ($48 million for PerezHilton? LOL!) Now I know why Wall St. gets in trouble with dot com bubble, subprime mortgage mess, etc.
Lo and behold, Neatorama's on it! While I'm not sure why this lil' blog is valued at $1.5 million (where do I cash out?), it's still nice to see that we're being talked about alongside some of the most famous names in blogs. :)
