Crazy things from craigslist

I’ve written before about the random things you come across on craigslist. Tonight, I happened to notice this posting:

High School/College Students – Sell Blogs – Make Money

Forget about MYSPACE – everyone is putting up their own Blog. Cash-in on the Blog explosion. If you are a high school or college student or anyone who thinks that they can sell a Blog, then respond to this ad. You will be paid $25 for each Blog that you sell – that’s it! You don’t have to set it up or support it – that’s our job. There is NO FEE for you to get started!

What?! Anyone else confused by this. Who are you selling blogs to? Whose blogs are they? How does one sell a blog anyway? And how about the suckers who buy them?

It sounds like one of those conversations you have with someone who tries to act like they know a lot more about something than they do. Like they’ll talk about designing a Web site and have no idea how it actually works, and it’s painfully obvious to you. And you just giggle inside at how dumb they sound. That’s what this post reminds me of — “anyone who thinks that they can sell a Blog” — as if it’s a house or a magazine subscription.
