For the past three years I have tried to work with Andy Sernovitz. For the past three years it has felt like banging my head against the wall. For those of you that haven’t heard of Andy he is a self proclaimed word of mouth marketing expert and the guy behind the Blog Council. He is also an advocate for disclosure, transparency and open conversations in the blogosphere.

You need to read this to get the back story behind our relationship:

Come back after you have read it. Seriously.

Today Andy attacked IZEA again. At this point I am kind of used to it, it is like some sort of strange rash that resurfaces every year or so. Once again I reached out to Andy on his blog, hoping to engage in conversation and perhaps constructive collaboration. Once again Andy Sernovitz went against everything he preaches, deleting my comment. An advocate for conversation that consistently deletes comments. How does that work exactly?

Luckily I am familiar with how Andy Sernovitz works so I took a screen shot before he deleted my comment.


Andy I am still here. Any time you want to talk and move the blogosphere forward drop me a line. You know my number.

UPDATE: Chris Brogan weighs in on Sponsored Conversations.
