Canadian Blogger Up For Auction

Prominent blogger, Jeremy Wright, is auctioning himself on eBay. The move is designed to raise the profile of blogging as well as to provide companies with an industry expert to guide them.
“Blogging gives your customers a real view into your company in ways that newsletters and seminars simply aren’t able to do.” says Jeremy Wright, who writes the popular Ensight business and technical blog, which is read by more than 60,000 readers a month. His blog recently made news by being the first blog to ever be sold.
The winner of the auction will be able to have Jeremy Wright work for them for three months. He will produce between 5-10 posts a week. In addition, Mr. Wright would work with the winning bidder to see what potential there is for blogging for them and their company – in effect acting as a blogging consultant for the period.
