Blogger for Hire on EBay

Posted By Darren Rowse 26th of November 2004 Other Income Streams 3

Blogger Jeremy C. Wright is in the news again – this time he’s auctioning his services as a blogger to the highest bidder! Yes you heard me right – Jeremy of Ensight is willing to blog for three months for the highest bidder – posting 5 to 10 times per week. The auction is at ebay and the bidding as of tonight is at $112.73.

He posts about it on his blog answering the question – Isn’t this all a little stupid? – Maybe. But, like all free market stuff, you never know if there’s a demand for something until you try. If there is a demand for this, there may be a demand for more blogger trials at more companies in which case – who knows – maybe I’ll end up brokering such deals for other bloggers with other companies.’

This isn’t the first time we’ve mentioned Jeremy on this blog – last time he was selling his blog in another attempt to earn money from his blogging.

So why is he auctioning himself? – ‘To be honest, I’m doing this to raise the profile of blogging, plain and simple. Plus, being a writer as well as a consultant in a past life, I know I can help companies figure out if blogging is the right space for them to be looking at.’

Interesting move – not only is he raising blogging’s profile but again he’s raising his own and hopefully will earn a few dollars on the side. $112.73 would be a bargain but with 7 days and 3 hours still to go in the auction I’m sure the price will rise – if not I know I’ll be putting in a bid!
