Friday Blogging Fun

I won't be posting all next week because I will be in Dallas celebrating Thanksgiving with my family at my brother's house. Cross your fingers that he has already bought the turkey and has it thawing in the fridge. He is single and for him cooking means picking up a phone an ordering out.
Since this is my last post until December, I thought I would have a little fun about some blog analyzing sites first profiled on LibraryBytes and later on Walt at Random. As Walt publishes his book The Liblog Landscape 2007-2008 and others attempt to analyze the State of the Blogosphere, it can be fun to look at blogs from a different and not too serious perspective.

For all of you who love those Myers-Briggs tests, Typealyzer is a site that will do a Myers-Brigg analysis on a blog. The Krafty Librarian is ISTP, a Mechanic.

ISTP - The Mechanics

The independent and problem-solving type. They are especially attuned to the demands of the moment are masters of responding to challenges that arise spontaneously. They generally prefer to think things out for themselves and often avoid inter-personal conflicts. The Mechanics enjoy working together with other independent and highly skilled people and often like seek fun and action both in their work and personal life. They enjoy adventure and risk such as in driving race cars or working as policemen and firefighters.

You caught me, I do wish I could drive a race car. To my husband's horror at his company Christmas party, I threw a bunch of raffle tickets into the hopper for a chance to win The Richard Petty Driving Experience. I didn't win. So it is still just me and my little Civic on I-90, at least it is a stick shift.

The Genderanalyzer use artificial intelligence to try and determine whether the blog is written by a man or woman. Apparently I am a man, which is news to me. Perhaps it is the race car thing.

The Readability Test evaluates your blog to determine "what level of education is required to understand your blog."

I am ok with that, my mind still believes that I am still the same age as a typical undergraduate.

How much is your blog worth determines the value of your blog's worth using a link to dollar ratio based upon Technorati ranking and advertising potential. The Krafty Librarian blog is worth $26,533.38, which offsets my 401k losses nicely. It still means I should keep my day job unless I can convince my husband to create the must have iPhone App which will make us $250,000 in two months.
