How much is your blog worth?

$8,468.10, eh? I’m not sure if I should be pleased or irritated.

Here are a few comparison prices:

I guess I make an okay showing.

It’s fairly interesting to see how the math for these numbers was originally conceived. The data, of course, is taken from Technorati (which explains a lot, really). Here’s the link if you want to see how much your blog is (supposedly) worth.

Three reasons to be cheerful

John Kovalic thinks he’s starting a meme. I found it via Wil Wheaton.

Anyway, listing things that make me cheerful would be a nice thing to do right about now, so here I go.

1) Thinking about how the people we love have reacted to our apartment fire. This is the biggest one because it’s at the forefront of my mind. Everyone has been so generous and wonderful. It’s overwhelming and humbling and it just makes me feel so loved.

2) Water. Lakes, streams, creeks, ponds, waterfalls, the ocean…I love water. I’ve said it before a zillion times, and I’ll say it again: water rejuvenates me.

3) Looking at Sean. I love to just watch him. He has the cutest smile ever. I won’t get into the other things I love to watch too specifically, because I’m sure you’re all groaning already, and I don’t want you to have to vomit too. Let’s just leave it at this: my husband is the most attractive man in the world.

There. Hmm, I am feeling pretty cheerful :)
