Blogshares: How I got started

I registered for an account about the same time I started this blog in February 2005. Why did I do that? It was a monkey see, monkey do thing. Mr Brown had one, so did Mr Miyagi, and many others and I thought I had to get one.

I have to admit the blogshares interface was a tad confusing when I first registered so I forgot all about it until early May. For some unknown reason, I absent-mindedly clicked on Hui Chieh's blogshares link and noticed that he had a Premium account. And he was also doing pretty well growing my double digit percentage points from what I could decipher from the statistics.

But I was thinking to myself, why would a perfectly sane chap like HC pay USD15 for a premium account? I mean great, you get unlimited transactions and what not. Big deal! That piqued my interest and so I started reading the blogshares help page and started trading on blogshares.

Non-premium players are only allowed 20 transactions i.e. buying or selling of shares of blogs a day. I lasted for about a week before I took the plunge for premium and the rest, as they say, is history.

Yes, HC, it's all your fault that I got addicted to blogshares! :-D

  • Ok, ok, it's my fault. I subscribed partly by accident, partly out of curiosity, and mostly because blogshares, strangely enough, appears to keep the most up to date information on who is linking...
