My blog is worth that much?

From Jason Yip:

How much is your blog worth?

And if anyone wants to buy it at that price (that’s US currency, of course), please feel free to let me know. Contact me before the end of 2005, and I’ll even through in a 10% discount… afterwards, of course, the price may be even higher, as I’m always making new value on the site.
