More on the eBay Blogger

So, I've been following the continuing saga of Jeremy Wright, blogger-for-hire via eBay.

His auction closed, and he can say 'I-told-you-so' to me and other...the winning bid ended up at $3350! For three months consultancy.

Now, I think that's still a steal for the winning bidder, I mean, he's not just going to write a few posts...he's going to examine their business, figure out what sort of blog would achieve their goals (whether they be marketing, support, sales, or project mgmt. goals) and try to get that blog visibility and readership...then train them to take over internally if they care to.

That's a lot of value IMHO.

You can listen to a podcast report on the auction that includes interviews from around the blogosphere, plus interviews with Jeremy on They quote my post on Jeremy's auction in the piece, so I'm getting some hits today from it.

I do wonder, though, why, why do people pronounce my name Eliza (as in Doolittle)? Since I was a kid that has been the single most common mispronunciation of my name.

I wonder if I can record a reverse version of Liza Minelli's theme song and post it as an udio clip on all my web sites:

"It's Elisa with an 'S', not Eliza, with a 'Z'
It's eee, not iii"

etc. etc.

Apologies! I should have checked with you first for the correct pronounciation, but wanted to get the show out :)
