Q. So, poor Henry Copeland [of Blogads]. You’re finally coming after him.
A. That’s like Michael Jordan going after a 12-year old in a game of 1-on-1.
He didn’t exactly say which person was associated with which, but knowing Jason and the way he tends to say whatever is on his mind, and his tendency to be a little more egotistical than some, undoubtedly believes himself to be Michael Jordan.Â I has my syndrome, being that the older I get the better I was.Â Henry answers the call to play Jason on his own court:
I laughed when I first read that. Typical Jason.
But, having thought about it, I think there’s an interesting game to be played.
Does Jason think he’s the Michael Jordan of blog businesses? If he really believes that mallarky, I’ve got $10K that says he’s wrong.
Henry Copeland has decided to put up $10,000 of his own money to prove a point about money earned for bloggers.Â He is positive that he can prove that Blogads has earned more for bloggers in 2006 than did Weblogs, Inc. for AOL.Â This seems to me to be a pretty safe bet unless of course we are talking about the difference between what the WIN network of blogs made for bloggers such as Jason himself, and the heavy hitters in that group, but by and large, I would almost put my own $10K in the pot to see this actually happen.Â My money is on Henry Copeland and Blogads.Â Why?Â He only takes a percentage of the money earned by bloggers.Â Jason and the people at AOL get the lion’s share of the revenue generated as a result of the advertising monies generated by that network.Â Henry’s money would probably be safe if he merely offered up just the revenue received by the political bloggers in 2006 being it was an election year.Â It has yet to be seen if this goes anywhere, but at the odds being offered, I would be happy to show up in Las Vegas to be the judge!Â How about it Jason?
