No, this isn't an April Fool's joke. Shares in the ClickRich blog, at least fictionally, have been listed on the BlogShares market. Feel free to buy shares in this site (clicking on the BlogShares image at the bottom of the left hand menu is a shortcut) although I should point out that will help my holding! Still, the analysts on the site still reckon my shares are underpriced and are worth getting hold of.
Basically, you don't need to have your own blog to participate and each player is given a fictional $500 to trade. Then market forces take over. I'll be interested in how this game pans out for me as a player. There certainly seem to be some advanced features you'd expect of a real stock market, in addition to buying and selling, such as placing orders.
ClickRich is trading at 31c at the moment with the blog valued at $1,618.75- a bargain.
