    His blog? Your kidding right? It's John Chow's blog which is full of plugging his own bullshit, having his newbie readers sign up under his affiliate ID's, talks about the food he eats as a tax write off, blah blah blah, some more bullshit, blah blah blah. And seriously doubt he hangs out in any forums anymore...I can't believe you asked if it was his...sorry gave me a good laugh.

    Either some great link bait or a learning lesson to go after billion dollar niches and hook a nice following, build it up, and sell it off...

    I call BS, $15 MILLION for a site Alexa ranked 41k? Sounds like some hype promo.

    Ok, I gotta ask. Why all the hate on John? Reason I ask, is I know him personally. Was personally invited to a couple of the Comdex parties he's thrown in Vegas (great parties!), and been a long time member of TechZone. He's been nothing but gracious to me each time I've dealt with him. Something about him I'm missing?

    Well maybe he is making that much, who knows. Sometimes we just have to leave at it like that without doubting or criticizing though my emotions want to tell me, "it's all lies" But i guess I shouldn't decide true or false, but take it as it is, and see if I can earn my own $15 million dollars too!

    But it's possible though with Chow. You know he got some secret blogs he is blogging on with pen names......
