I thought it might be fun, so I signed up on Blogshares, the Fantasy Blog Shares Market. I now have a thousand shiny shares of Polytropos that Id be happy to sell for fake blogshares money. I also started to go out in search of shares to buy, but the whole process turns out to be financially complicated, just like the real stock market. Looks like I will have to RTFM before I can fully participate. One of these days.
