How Much is Your Blog Worth?

My blog is worth $7,903.56.
How much is your blog worth?

How much is your blog worth? Well I guess that's a bit of a strange question to ask because we can never really say.

Do we quantify the value of our blog in the amount of PV's or whether it has won awards or been nominated? But that still doesn't really tell us how much our blog is worth.

Dane Carlson's Business Opportunities Weblog can give your a dollar value!

He has created a little little applet using Technorati's API which computes and displays your blog's worth using the same link to dollar ratio as the AOL-Weblogs Inc deal.

So if you want to see how much your blog is worth, just type your url into the little box and prepare yourself for the surprise!

Diakonia Durban Good Friday Easter Service 2008

, a Greek word meaning “service”, is a shared ministry to serve God in suffering people, in the poorest, in those most in need.

Theme: "Who is my Neighbour?"

Human Rights Day and Good Friday combine in Easter Service

In a long-standing tradition established by Diakonia Council of Churches in 1985, the Good Friday Service 2008 will be held at the Durban Exhibition Centre on 21 March commencing at 06h15.

It is a remarkable day as this date also coincides with Human Rights Day, and in keeping with the theme, the guest preacher, Fr Albert Nolan OP, will be preaching on "Who is my Neighbour?".

Over the years the Good Friday Services have become a landmark event in the life of the city and our member churches, with many thousands of people attending and joining in the procession which follows through the streets of Durban and ends at the front steps of the City Hall, with a flowering of the cross.

Camera Phone Pictures Online Instantly

The blurb on the website tells me that Red Zebra Mobile is "the easiest, fastest way to send pictures from your camera-phone to your online gallery."

The best thing is that Red Zebra is free and it requires no software for you to create an online gallery of camera phone pictures that you can share with your friends.

Although the online camera phone picture hosting service is free at Red Zebra they "specialise in feature rich solutions for business, government and organizations who need the full range of features " for which they say they charge a "modest fee".

Why not check Red Zebra Mobile out?
