Ernie’s Up By 34

Ernie Schenck is up by 34 votes in Ad-Rag’s Battle of the Adblogs. The score is currently AdPulp 203, Ernie 237.
Frankly, I’ll be glad when this beauty contest is over on Friday. I’m tired of clicking over there to see the score.
Isn’t vanity a sin? I’m pretty sure it is, although I’m rusty in theology.
Anyway, what is this common yen for recognition? I have it, Ernie has it, George has it…

    david,
    it’s probably rooted in some traumatic childhood experience.

    Sounds reasonable.
    By the way, I want to thank you for saying (in the comments on Ernie’s blog) that Adrants and AdPulp are the blog equivalents of Adweek and AdAge. I’ll take that as high praise. See, my childhood wounds are cured!

    High praise from HighJive? He also said this on Ernie’s blog:
    “Ernie Schenck versus AdPulp is like DeNiro versus Rob Schneider (No disrespect to AdPulp. Or Schneider.)”
    Kind of a backhanded compliment, I’d say.

    I try to look at the bright side.

    geez, you guys are too sensitive.
    to be honest, i continue to believe the contest, while well-intentioned, is kinda screwy with its categories. there’s one blog in the ad agency category that even the creators admit is not being produced by an ad agency.
    and the rob schneider comment was not supposed to be a back-handed compliment. i just think you and schenck are two different entities versus things to be ranked together. besides, i suspect schneider is probably much more popular than deniro within our overall culture.
    later.
