How much is your blog worth?

I came across through a nice tool to compute how much your blog is worth from Dane Carlson’s Business Opportunities Weblog. The tool computes a dollar value for your blog using the same link-to-dollar ratio as the recent sale of Weblogs, Inc. to America Online:
How Much Is Your Blog Worth?

I would not have even given it a shot except that it was endorsed by Technorati(the google of blogging?) 
So actually all you have to do is give the url of the blog and it magically computes the value of your blog using some algorithms of technorating ranking,backlinks etc. 
I tried it for this blog and this is what came out:

        My blog is worth $2,822.70.
How much is your blog worth?

 Now I don't know what can I do with that data but it sure feels nice to know that your blog is worth something.!
This is what technorati has to say about this tool:

"We here at Technorati think that all your blogs are priceless. But when Weblogs Inc. was bought by AOL a few weeks ago, Tristan Louis did the math. He figured out how much each blog in the Weblogs Inc. stable was worth, based on their Technorati rank.
Inspired, Dane Carlson whipped up a handy little calculator with the Technorati API. Just enter your blog URL to see how much it's "worth" using the Weblogs/AOL math. Give it a try!
Let me know how much is your blog worth.
