It’s weird enough when a colleague mentions that they found my blog, but this is somehow infinitely weirder. Said link is to a site called “Blogshares,” a fantasy stock market that uses blogs instead of companies.
As of this writing, Got Medieval is trading at $50 a share. This sounds impressive to me, but I’m sure it’s actually quite pathetic. My blog’s also 80% owned by two traders, neither of whom is me. I worry that this means they can force me out and install a new blogger if I don’t meet their goals for blog profitability–or if I don’t ever write that review of last year’s King Arthur movie.
