You don't have to have your own blog to play BlogShares. All new players are given $500 in BlogShares cash to start. If you pop into the forum and say hello, be sure to post your player id number (found in the left side Members Area once you are logged in), and there's a good chance an experienced player will give you some free funds! Look for the New Player? Say Hello here! thread under the General Discussion section. What you earn from there is up to your investment decisions.
Here follow a few things you should know. So read on, and then go play!
Like any game, BlogShares has rules! It's important to know them well, because violating them can have serious consequences for your account. You should read the full Rules prior to beginning game play.
New players should be especially aware of the rule regarding Multiple Player Accounts: Players are not permitted to own multiple accounts. This includes a player owning a premium and a free account.
