That's what Casey Serin, dubbed the world's most hated blogger, did. And now he's making back at least some of the money he lost.
From CNET: "Financial exhibitionism, coupled with a lack of penitence for stiffing his creditors, has transformed the 24-year-old resident of this sleepy Sacramento suburb into a celebrity among fellow bloggers. But unlike other online celebrities, Serin's stardom comes from a unique source: 'haters' who patronize his blog solely to learn what financial missteps he's made today."
In a just world, he'd be chained to a pillar in the public square and we'd all be allowed to chuck fruit at him. Actually, his creditors should be allowed to pelt him with something more substantial -- like watermelons or bricks.
Instead, Serin "estimates he was making up to $1,000 a month through Google ads and believes he's on track to make even more through Yahoo's ad network."
I'd be a little more upset if the whole thing didn't sound like an elaborate hoax.
