Business Opportunities Weblog notes that My Wealth Builder, which you are currently reading, is worth $350,579.34. In addition, several other blogs which I read are highly valued using this price calculator. Here are a few examples.
Money, Matter, and More Musings - $455,019.24 as of 5/12/07
The Digerati Life - $522,764.04 as of 5/12/07
BioHealth Investor - $326,868.66 as of 5/12/07
Investor Trip - $355,660.20 as of 5/12/07
Is another bubble happening? My answer is no for the following reasons:
- No one is buying. While Money, Matter and More Musings had been in discussions with Warren Buffett, none of us has been so fortunate yet:-) I have yet to receive any offers to buy my blog, much less one at an offer near the above prices. Perhaps, I should issue a 20% of discount coupon valid on Mother's Day.
- Revenue or profits are being used to determine prices. The above calculations are based on the number of links and uses the same link to dollar ratio as the AOL - Weblogs deal. I expect that a more realistic price for my blog would be 10 to 20 times revenue. I can confirm that my blog is not making $17,000 to $35,000 per year to justify a $350,000 sales price.
- It's easy to start a blog. The cost of entry is low. Why buy one when creating one costs far less and is easy to do? Technorati highlights that there are over 71 million blogs, up from 55 million 9 months ago.
