This comes up every now and then.

I was going to hold out for a cool half a mil, but what the hell.

Be sure to include the second "T" when you make out the check.
The spelling is Rit – hol – "T" – Z" . . .

My blog is worth $478,165.38.

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    Buy the Misses some gold. She’ll be happy. Then buy foreign currency with the rest. You’ll be happy.

    Darn, no wonder why my check for $500,000.00 was returned-the mail carrier said there was no one named Cary Ritholz.

    There are plenty of people that buy small engineering and consulting companies…they just don’t get the saying, “every night all the assets walk out the door…”.

    Maybe the same sort would buy your Blog :)

    What is that, Zillow for Blogs? I smell a new bubble.

    Maybe you can take out a BELOC and do those additions and upgrades you always wanted. Get us some granite counter tops in here. It’s all equity, right?

    “My” blog clocks in at $0.00.
